Drafting Contracts is a textbook designed to teach students how to draft business contracts. It is intended for use in an upper-level drafting course, for which it would be the required text. In addition, many aspects of the textbook can be integrated into other courses—for example, a first-year contracts course, a mergers and acquisitions course, or a transactional clinic. In these courses, the book could be either a required main text, a supplemental text, or a recommended text. A lay person’s preparation of a corporate charter, bylaws, and related documents, which are important contractual documents and legal instruments, also constitutes unauthorized practice of law.

Setting up a Limited Liability Company in China

 

For foreign investors, you can set up a wholly foreign owned enterprise in China. This means that the foreign shareholder is the 100% shareholder of the company. The liability of the shareholders can either be limited by shares or the amount of capital contributed. Below we talk about the company with limited liability by capital. As experienced China company lawyer, we provide company registration, company incorporation in China, covering the cities in Shanghai, Beijing, Chengdu, Tianjin, Guangzhou, Shenzhen and other major cities.


The Limited Liability Company (LLC), is a popular legal format for business owners. It's available in all provinces and cities in China. Small business owners are taking advantage of the LLC because it is easier to set up and maintain than a company limited by shares.

ADVANTAGES OF FORMING AN LLC

Limited Liability


Like corporations, LLCs provide their members (owners) with protection from personal responsibility for the company's debt. Members are only liable to the extent of their investments in the company. If a customer slips and is injured on company property, a law suit may still bankrupt the business, but it cannot touch the personal assets of the LLC's members. This limited liability, then, is a great advantage over partnerships. In general partnerships, all members are liable for the company's debts and in a limited partnership, at least one member must still be liable.
