|Corporate Litigation: What Is Alter Ego?|
Los Angeles corporate litigation lawyers will tell you that one of the most often used concepts in California business litigation is that of alter ego. Alter ego is an attempt by a litigant to get past the protections of a corporate entity. In lawsuits regarding small corporations the phrase "pierce the corporate veil" is used to describe an attempt to disregard the corporate protections to go after the founder of the corporation personally. In larger corporate litigation alter ego is also used go after a corporate subsidiary's larger corporate owner. In general the idea of alter ego is to disregard a corporate entity in order to get to the real money.
