As a business owner or individual, your decisions have legal ramifications. That starts with the choice of entity--sole proprietorship, partnership, corporation, or LLC. The form of business has significant consequences in protecting its owners from personal liability.

- Vendor matters
- Customer disputes and debt collection
- Sale or dissolution of the business
