§ 7-16-3.2 Liability in rendering professional services.

(a) The liability of an individual authorized to practice a profession for his or her own negligence, wrongful acts or misconduct, or that of any person under his or her direct supervision and control, other than in an administrative capacity, shall not be affected by the individual's providing professional services in this state as a member or agent of a domestic or foreign limited liability company.

(b) An individual authorized to practice a profession and who is a member of a domestic or foreign limited liability company rendering professional services in this state is not liable solely by reason of being a member for any negligence, wrongful acts or misconduct of another member or agent of the limited liability company. A domestic or foreign limited liability company rendering professional services in the state is liable for the negligence, wrongful acts or misconduct of its members and agents providing professional services through the limited liability company within the scope of their authority or apparent authority to act for the limited liability company.

(c) Notwithstanding any other provisions of this section, the personal liability of a member in a limited liability company engaged in the rendering of professional services shall not be less than or greater than the personal liability of a shareholder of a professional corporation organized under chapter 5.1 of this title engaged in the rendering of the same professional services.
