PLLC Law and Legal Definition

PLLC is the abbreviation for a Professional Limited Liability Company. A PLLC is a limited liability company organized to provide professional services. Generally, state laws mandate professions such as doctors, accountants, lawyers, engineers, and architects to hold a license to provide services. Such professions require the formation of a PLLC. All members of a PLLC belong to the same profession. A Professional Limited Liability Company is also known as a P.L.L.C. or P.L.

Requirements of PLLCs vary from state to state. Some states do not permit PLLCs. For example, California laws do not allow a LLC to engage in the practice of a licensed profession.
