Why is it important to Protect Your Company from Piercing of the Corporate Veil?
The following is intended to provide information and clarification concerning the subject of Exposure to Piercing of the Corporate Veil.
Exposure to Piercing of Corporate Veil. Exposure to the piercing of the corporate veil, effectively eliminates the liability protection of the parent company:
- for ANY and ALL of its the subsidiaries (and subsidiaries of subsidiaries);
- for ANY and ALL operations, activities and failures to act by any subsidiary or their agents or employees;
- for ANY and ALL types of cases, including, but not limited to, contracts, subsidiary partner dispute cases, allegations of fraud cases, bankruptcy, employee cases, negligence, slip and fall cases, other personal injury cases and other torts (a wrongful act or an infringement of a right (other than under contract) leading to civil legal liability), etc.
- This exposure to the Piercing of the Corporate Veil defeats the purpose [or main/significant purpose] of operating businesses under separate LLC's and corporations.
