I don’t understand how a corporation, or LLC, being the General Partner/Manager is better than oneself functioning as that partner if that “oneself” has no assets to loose in a law suit.
If the partnership is sued and the General Partner/Manager (corporation, or “oneself”) is sued and/or is held liable, than that entity could technically loose all assets in the suit.
I understand how other assets are protected from the partnership assets in the suit but I still don’t understand the personal liability protection afforded by the corporation acting as the General Partner, as opposed to “oneself,” if the Corporation is sued.
