Just what is an LLC? Here's a definition from Lectric Law Library's Lexicon:
A business structure that is a hybrid of a partnership and a corporation. Its owners are shielded from personal liability and all profits and losses pass directly to the owners without taxation of the entity itself.

Forming a limited liability company is more complex than forming a partnership, but is less complicated than forming and operating a corporation. Forming a limited liability company is a formal process.
In a limited liability company, a member's legal liability is limited to his or her investment in the business. Generally, a member's personal assets are not at risk, but a member's personal assets may be at risk if any of the following occurs:
· A member personally guarantees a business debt.
· The form of business is found to be a sham (not properly formed or maintained).
· A member becomes personally liable as a result of his or her own acts or conduct.
