What's best regarding a business structure?

Question Details: I am starting a business selling products through Amazon. I would like to protect my personal and business assets in case of potential lawsuits. It is my understanding that I would need to create a "holding" company that owns the assets and then create another "operating" company that would then borrow the assets. We would then do business as the operating company with Amazon with the idea being if someone sues the operating business. It does not own the actual assets therefore, we are protected. Please confirm 1is my understanding correct? Is it best to do this through a Series LLC? Is it necessary to hire a lawyer to set up the organizational structure for asset protection.
