Negotiating Business Deals/Liability

Advertisement


Question
A friend and myself are starting a small shipping company. Basically, we will be moving furniture, pets, small vehicles, and all kinds of things across the country. What type of liability or release forms should we get to be safe?

Answer
You first should make sure your business is a Limited Liability Company. That would provide a defense against claims against you personally. Secondly, you should have a release prepared by your attorney to limit your liability for items beyond your control. I know that if a mover wants to eliminate their negligence, I simply would go to another company.

Sam, you really need a good business lawyer to help you!
