This is a misperception on many peoples part. The corporate veil is real, but only to the extent that the individual did not personally contribute to the liability. In other words, if you own a share of IBM, you are not liable for its misdeeds, even though you are one of the owners.

However, establish a corporation wherein you are managing its affairs, you likely do remain personally liable. Not for the corporations misdeeds, but for your own.
