Limited Liability

Under limited liability, a person, company, or entity’s liability is limited up to a specific amount of money. The amount is usually determined by the invested money. Some of the most common examples of limited liability include the responsibility shareholders have on a company (which is limited to their investment in that company), and a limited partner in a partnership.
