You’ve decided to start your own business in Ohio. Get your business off to a good start by taking the steps you need to form and operate a legal business entity in Ohio.

What Does a Limited Liability Mean?

Limited liability refers to liability that does not surpass the amount of money invested in a limited liability company or partnership. One of the main advantages of investing in a publicly listed company is the limited liability feature. A shareholder is capable of participating entirely in a company's growth with liability limited to the amount he or she has invested in the company. This is true even if the company goes bankrupt and possesses debt obligations.

If an individual or company is functioning under limited liability, this means that it is not possible to seize the assets of the associated individuals to deal with the debt obligations of a company. Any funds invested with the company directly are viewed as company assets. In the event of insolvency, only these assets can be seized.

What Is a Clawback Clause?

A clawback clause gives investors of a brand-new company a chance to reclaim money or stock options already given to a partner or employee. Clawback clauses may also be found in the limited partnership agreements of private equity or venture capital funds.
