PLLCs vs. LLCs
PLLCs and LLCs are very similar entities. Many of the advantages of an LLC apply to a PLLC as well. However, there are some important and substantial differences between the two entities, including:
- Ownership: Members of a PLLC must be licensed to provide the type of professional services provided by the company.
- Malpractice Liability Protection: In addition to the PLLC being liable for a member’s malpractice, a member of a PLLC who commits malpractice is personally responsible for their malpractice. The other members of the PLLC are not personally liable for the malpractice of another member. Members of a PLLC need to have malpractice insurance.
- Securities Laws: Certain sales of ownership in PLLCs are exempt from Texas securities laws.
