FAQs About LLC And LLC Lawyers

What Does LLC Stand For In Law?

LLC stands for Limited Liability Company. It’s a business structure designed to prevent members from being held personally liable for debts and lawsuits incurred by a company. Since LLCs are not taxable, it’s considered a “pass-through” entity, meaning that while losses and profits are filed on personal income tax returns, owners can’t be held liable on an individual basis for anything the business owes.

Is An LLC A Good Idea?

To figure out whether an LLC is suitable for your company, it’s best to consult an LLC formation attorney. Generally, LLCs work well for small businesses since they offer tax benefits and require minimal recordkeeping.

Do I Need A Lawyer To Start An LLC?

While you don’t technically need to hire an LLC lawyer to form an LLC, it makes the process much easier. A lawyer will guide you through the process of filing important documents (like an Articles of Organization with your state), ensure all records are error-free and properly maintained, and provide ongoing legal advice.
