New York small business lawyer, Imke Ratschko, has some excellent advice regarding the care corporate officers should exercise when signing agreements. As Imke points out, it is always important for a corporate officer to sign agreements and other documents using their corporate title. Moreover, the officer should make sure to read the agreement carefully to make sure personal obligations are not hidden in the agreement.
Read agreements and sign them correctly. These two pieces of advice are two of the easiest ways to avoid personal liability and maintain the corporate shield. I know it is common sense but as Voltaire said, "Common sense is not so common."
