Maryland law provides for how to properly form a Maryland LLC. Title 4A of the Maryland Corporations and Associations Act governs the formation and operation of limited liability companies (“LLC”) registered in Maryland. A Maryland LLC, when properly formed, provides limited liability for all members of the LLC for debts incurred by the LLC during normal operations. For example, if a member of a properly formed LLC opens a business credit card in the name of the LLC (and does not otherwise personally guarantee the debts of the LLC), the members are, generally, not personally liable for paying the credit card bill. This is also true for other contracts entered into between another party and the LLC. If the LLC or a person working for the LLC fails to perform under the contract, the LLC and not its members would be liable to the other party. To learn more about properly forming a Maryland LLC, see this article.
