How does an LLC limit liability for owners of the business?

Under the law, an owner of an LLC (generally called a "member") has no personal liability for the obligations of the LLC. Creditors of the LLC can recover solely against the assets of the LLC, and not against the personal assets of the members of the LLC. Thus, the financial risk undertaken by a member of an LLC is generally limited to the amount invested by the member in the LLC.
