more about choosing a business name here.
- Do I Need a Corporate Lawyer?
There’s a myth out there that you need a corporate lawyer r olegal advisor in order
to incorporate. While it’s certainly important to consult with a lawyer or advisor
to determine the best type of business for your unique situation (all of the general
information in the world is no substitute for trained legal advice specifically
tailored to your business and your situation), the actual incorporation process
is something that can be done just as effectively with us as with a lawyer—and at
significant savings in legal fees.
Is the Corporate Veil?
When you incorporate, your business can enter into contracts and take out loans
with the assurance that the individual owners’ personal finances are not in jeopardy;
incorporated entities, such as corporations or LLCs, provide limited liability to
the business owners (as opposed to a DBA, in which the business and the owner are
legally the same entity). This is called the corporate veil—the legal separation
between business and owner. But there are corporate regulations you must comply
with if you want to keep the courts from piercing the corporate veil and going after
your own personal assets.
