OPINION 486
March 1994

Statement of Facts

Two lawyers have decided to practice law together. Both lawyers are licensed by the Texas Supreme Court and are in good standing. In considering the different forms of organization which the lawyers may choose, they have found certain advantages in the formation of a Texas limited liability company for the practice of law.

Question Presented

Do the Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct permit lawyers to form a Texas limited liability company for the practice of law under Article. 1528n, Tex. Civ. Stat.?

Conclusion

We find no provision in the Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct which would prohibit two or more attorneys to practice law as a limited liability company under Article 1528n.
