In most cases you are correct, However there are some exceptions to this.
A hight court example:a company director who signed a supply contract specifying payment obligations by the company made an implied representation that the company was able to make payment, which he knew was unlikely to be true. The director was jointly liable with the company in the tort of deceit, and, because his liability was based on fraud, he was not able to evade personal liability by sheltering behind the separate legal personality of the company.
More of an extreme example, but there can be exception. If however, your case is just based on wrong advice given then there should be no reason why the protection of separate legal personality from the company should not apply, and the person considering legal action should only be able to take this against the company.
