On June 2, 2016 Keil Mueller, along with fellow Portland litigators John Parsons and Susan Marmaduke, spoke to members of the Multnomah Bar Association on Piercing the Corporate Veil and Other Limits on Limited Liability.
The panel discussed concepts that affect when the boundaries between one person or entity and another act as a firewall for purposes of liability and personal jurisdiction, and when they do not. Questions address included: When do the boundaries between one person and another work to limit liability, and when does the law disregard those boundaries for purposes of liability? When does a “limited liability” entity really limit the exposure of its owners? And when are contacts with a forum state imputed to another for purposes of personal jurisdiction?
