A professional limited liability company (PLLC) is a limited liability company formed for the purpose of providing professional services. Usually this is professions that require a state license to be practiced: doctor, lawyer, accountant, architect, or engineer. Typically, a PLLC’s members must all be practicing the same profession. The PLLC’s members' limited liability typically only extends to business claims, such as a claim from a creditor. They are not immune from professional negligence or malpractice suits.
