When starting a business it is important to protect your assets. When you're sue you might lose everything you own. However, with a LLP you don't have to. A LLP can be thought of as a layer of protection between you, your business, and your personal assets. When you're sue everything you had put into the business has a chance of being taken away from you. How, your personal assets, things you didn't put into the business, or safe and sound.
