Ohio Supreme Court "limited liability" language usage

The Ohio Supreme Court this morning reported it has adopted amendments to its Government of the Bar of Ohio & Rules of Professional Conduct changing references to “partnership having limited liability” and “registered partnership” to “limited liability partnership,” effective Jan. 1, 2012.

Rules affected are Rule III, Sections 1-4, and Rule VI, Section 1, of the Rules for the Government of the Bar and Rule 1.4, Comment [8], and Rule 7.5(a) of the Ohio Rules of Professional Conduct.

The changes act to conform Supreme Court Rules to the language used in the updated Ohio Revised Code chapter and statutory references to the Ohio Uniform Partnership Act back in 2008.
