Some states, including North Dakota, allow certain occupations to form “Professional LLCs.” These types of businesses typically have special requirements and licensing. Here’s what the SOS says about professional LLCs in North Dakota:
"A professional limited liability company, as the name implies, is a limited liability company made up exclusively of licensed professionals. Licensed professionals are those people who have been legally authorized to provide a professional service to the public that requires a license prior to rendering the service.
A professional limited liability company may render:
- One specific type of professional service and services ancillary thereto, or
- Two or more kinds of professional services that are specifically authorized to be practiced in combination under North Dakota's licensing laws of each of the professional services to be rendered.
A professional limited liability company is created, and otherwise operates and is treated, in the same manner as a general business limited liability company.”
