How do I form an LLP?

You cannot “form” an LLP; instead, you can form a partnership (either a general partnership or a limited partnership (LP)), and the partnership can choose to take the steps to register as an LLP. An LLP is not an entity separate and apart from the underlying partnership; instead, it is a registration that is made by the underlying partnership, namely, a pre-existing general partnership or a pre-existing limited partnership (LP) to limit the liability of its partners. Registering an LLP does not create a partnership.
