What would be the liability on an unicorporated agency if a reporter lost or made
some kind of huge mistake with the transcript? Even though reporters are independent contractors, is the agency ultimately liable and are they subject to being sued by the client? And if so, would this mean as an unincorporated agency, and if it was a general partnership, that the owners would be liable?
And another question is: does anyone that owns an agency have any examples of issues that have come up regarding liability?

What are the necessary steps in order to protect your personal assets if you are starting out as a general partnership?
