Protecting Your Clients from Personal Liability 

This presentation will discuss piercing the corporate veil, the one mistake 99% of attorneys make when setting up a company, what veil piercing is, why it is something to be concerned about, whether it only applies to corporations, the standards applied by the Illinois courts, and how we as attorneys can help our clients avoid having their veil pierced. This presentation will give you tools to provide that extra level of service to your clients so you are a valued resource and not just a word smith. After this presentation you will be able to proactively help your clients not only understand, but retain, the concept of running a business so as to avoid personal liability for business debts.
