Naming a Limited Liability PartnershipAgency:
Licensing and Regulatory Affairs
Since limited liability partnerships are existing entities in various counties, names may be the same or similar. The Corporation 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. The name of the limited liability partnership may not be available if it is misleading, confusing or deceptively similar to the name of another business entity.
