Naming a Limited Liability Partnership

Agency: Licensing and Regulatory Affairs

Since limited liability partnerships are existing entities in various counties, names may be the same or similar. The Corporations Division reviews the application, and if it substantially conforms to the Act, registers the partnership as a limited liability partnership for one year. Renewal is required each year to maintain limited liability partnership status.

If a limited liability partnership desires to operate under one or more names other than its true name, a "Certificate of Persons Conducting Business Under Assumed Name" must be prepared and filed with the various counties in which the partnership is transacting business.
