The LLC creates an informational tax, like partnerships do, which means your assets are protected within this legal framework. This is so you can separate them without risking anything else on your behalf by not declaring yourself self-employed instead with all the benefits such as health insurance coverage provided through employers’ policies.

Limited Liability Partnership

A limited liability partnership is a business entity that has to be filed with the state for recognition. If they do business in another state, then they would have to register there too. The continuity of this company can also change based on what’s written in their agreement. 

Generally speaking, if one partner leaves the group, it could lead to dissolution. Still, most states don’t allow this and instead give other partners power over reconstituting them or dissolving altogether depending on each situation.

A partner leaving can be due to one partner exercising his or her right to leave. Still, it also can occur from something that neither partner was responsible for, like a lawsuit. 

Each limited partner has control over the business, and each of them is an owner of the company. Our lawyers will help you organize the relevant documents for the appropriate entity.

Business Entity

A business entity refers to the name of a legal company registered in conjunction with another state-level identity. Registering your business will provide protection for its activities and finances, but it can be tricky to navigate without an attorney’s help.
