Why form a Professional LLC?

A Professional Limited Liability Company is a legal structure authorized by some states to limit personal liability for claims related to a co-partner's negligence, error, omission, incompetency, or malfeasance. Unlike a regular corporation, a Professional Limited Liability Company does not absolve a professional for personal liability for his or her own negligence or malpractice. The limit of an individual partner's liability depends on the scope of a given state's PLLC legislation. Some states do not provide for PLLC legislation at all.

But you have a company to manage, and forming a PLLC takes time.

Most of our customers choose to form an LLC in the state in which they are conducting business. This is typically the most simple and cost effective way to operate.

Some customers form their LLC in other states for tax reasons. Any state that you do business in will require you to file a "Foreign Qualification" if you are not forming an LLC in that state. This regulation is state-specific.
