Liability Disclaimer: Desert Wildlife Consultants, LLC engages in outdoor activities, which all participants acknowledge are inherently dangerous. We will take reasonable precautions and behave in a reasonable manner to help our clients have a safe and enjoyable trip. Understanding however, that our clients must take some responsibility for their behavior, and further understanding that bad things happen to good people for no apparent reason. Slips and falls on rocky terrain are not unexpected, dangerous animals and spiny vegetation are common, and the drivers around Las Vegas are so bad that it is safer to assume they really are trying to hit you.

What is a Limited Liability Company? A limited liability company, or LLC, is a business structure that protects LLC owners from personal liability for business debts. If the LLC owes money or faces a lawsuit, only the assets of the business are at risk. Creditors can't get the personal assets of LLC owners (e.g., house, car, or cash) unless the LLC owners act illegally, unethically, or irresponsibly. For more information, see the Nolo website.
