What are the advantages of a limited liability partnership (LLP)?
A Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) has many of the same characteristics as a general partnership. However, there is one important advantage to the LLP business model. If a partnership is formed as an LLP then each partner is only personally liable for his or her own negligence or for the negligence of an employee under that partner’s direct supervision. So, if for example, the partners formed an accounting firm and one of the accountants is found guilty of malpractice then only the accountant who committed the malpractice would be personally liable for the damages that incurred as a result of his actions. It is important to note, however, that this limited liability does not extend to business debts which all partners would share in equally regardless of which partner was responsible for incurring the debt.
Lead Counsel independently verifies attorneys by conferring with state bar associations and conducting annual reviews to confirm that an attorney practices in their advertised practice areas and possesses a valid bar license for the appropriate jurisdictions.
