New Mexico Corporation
What is a New Mexico Corporation?
A New Mexico Corporation is (historically) the most popular form of a legal entity in the United States. Recently however, limited liability companies (LLCs) have become the prevailing choice of entity formation. Corporations provide a ‘corporate veil’ to their owners, known as stockholders (or shareholders), which shields them from the liabilities and obligations of the corporation.
