Common questions

What are some advantages of forming a limited partnership?
A limited partnership can take on investors while allowing the general partners to focus on running the business.

Limited partners are shielded from most liability.

Limited partners can leave or be replaced without any need to dissolve the partnership.
In a limited partnership, what is each partner's liability?
The personal liability of a limited partner is limited to the capital that the partner has invested. A general partner is personally liable for all business debts or claims.
How do I create a limited partnership?
You'll need to take some steps to register your LP with your state, but we'll help you through them—from clearing your LP's name to the filing of your certificate. It's also a good idea to create a limited partnership agreement, which spells out details of the partnership.

Form a Limited Partnership (LP) with LegalZoom

A limited partnership is a partnership formed by two or more people, with at least one person acting as the general partner and at least one person in the role of limited partner. The general partner in a limited partnership has management authority and personal liability while the limited partner acts as a passive investor with no management authority. One of the most notable advantages of a limited partnership is that it makes it easier to attract investors since the only liability for limited partners is the capital they invest in the business. Other advantages of a limited partnership include personal asset protection (for limited partners) and pass-through taxation. In order to form a limited partnership, you'll need to file certificate of limited partnership with the appropriate state agency (usually the Secretary of State). It's also a good idea to create a limited partnership agreement, which spells out the details of the partnership. Form a limited partnership online with LegalZoom. The process is simple and affordable.
