In the form of affiliated companies, although each company is independent in form, due to the existence of equity or agreement control between each other, affiliated companies are more likely to abuse limited liability to harm the interests of creditors compared to general company forms. This article takes the 15th Guiding Case issued by the Supreme People's Court as the starting point to analyze the disputed issue of personality denial of affiliated companies in judicial practice.
