I am confused by the mere shell reference? expound.
Business Lawyer: Infolawyer, Attorney replied 9 years ago
if a the corporation never followed corporate formalities, never has meetings, the principal commingles his personal account with the corporate account and it exists merely to avoid creditors, a court may let you get at the principals. but this is most rarely granted.
