Name Change - Rule 11.0 of the Limited Liability Partnership
Rules requires LLPs to report any change of name to the State Bar within
45 days of the change. If your LLP has had a change of name, please forward the following items:
There is no fee to request a name change for your LLP from the State Bar of California. Upon receipt and review of the foregoing, a Certificate of Registration will be issued to the LLP in its new name.
A $50 per partner (not to exceed $2,500) non-refundable fee must accompany this application.
(Numbers Correspond to Questions on the Application Form.)
The declarations must be signed by a partner authorized to act on behalf of the LLP. If the authorized partner is a law corporation, set forth the complete name of the corporation. A shareholder of the law corporation may sign on behalf of the corporation. Please specify that you are signing on behalf of the corporation. The application is not complete unless it has an original signature. No copies of signature, please. Without the original signed declaration by a partner authorized to act on behalf of the LLP, certification cannot be issued and the application will not be processed until we receive a declaration with the original signature of an authorized partner.
If you want to forward a separate list of partners, or separate lists of partners who practice in different offices or jurisdictions, as an addendum to Attachment 1, please use the following format:
Do not list partners and non-partners together on one list. If a "mixed list" is submitted, certification cannot be issued and the application will not be processed until you submit separate lists of partners and non-partners.
