Tutor Answer

School: UC Berkeley

Agency law is concerned with any "principal"-"agent" relationship; a relationship in which one person has legal authority to act for another. Such relationships arise from explicit appointment, or by implication. The relationships generally associated with agency law include guardian-ward, executor or administrator- decedent, and employer-employee. An example would be, Aflac agents/ employer. The agent is responsible for going out to different business to represent their company and sell to build the company. 

General Corporation: This is the most common corporate structure. The corporation is a separate entity that is owned by stakeholders.


Ø  Owners’ personal assets are protected from business debt liability

Ø  Tax free benefits such as insurance, travel, and retirement plan deductions

Ø  Change of ownership need not affect

Ø  Easier to raise capital through sale of stocks and bonds.


Ø  More expensive to form than proprietorship

Ø  More legal formality

Ø  More state and federal rules and regulations
