Why sole proprietorships and general partnerships offer no protection at all.
A sole proprietorship is a type of business entity which legally has no separate existence from its owner. As such, the limitations on liability enjoyed by corporations, LLCs, and LPs do not apply to sole proprietors. All debts of the business are debts of the owner since he or she retains no partners.
