Thank you for the post, I am happy to assist you by answering your questions. By virtue of the LLC you do not have personal liability should any partnership turn sour or the business in which you take on a partnership interest be sued (unless you commit fraud through the LLC). Please let me know if you need additional guidance.

If I am going to be taking ownership in multiple companies in the near future would you recommend that I file for an LLC to limit my personal liability?
Expert:  MShore replied 5 years ago.
Yes, I certainly would. You need that protection so your personal assets are not in jeopardy.
