ORS 67.105
Partner’s liability


Except as otherwise provided in this section, all partners are liable jointly and severally for all obligations of the partnership unless otherwise agreed by the claimant or provided by law.


A person admitted as a partner into an existing partnership is not personally liable for any partnership obligation incurred before the person’s admission as a partner.


(a) An obligation of a partnership incurred while the partnership is a limited liability partnership, whether arising in contract, tort or otherwise, is solely the obligation of the partnership. A partner is not personally liable, directly or indirectly, by way of indemnification, contribution or otherwise, for such an obligation solely by reason of being or so acting as a partner.


Notwithstanding paragraph (a) of this subsection, a partner of a limited liability partnership shall continue to be liable for any obligation of the partnership for which the partner was liable before the partnership became a limited liability partnership.


Nothing in this subsection shall in any way affect or impair the ability of a partner to be released from any such obligation. This subsection applies to a partner’s liability notwithstanding anything inconsistent in the partnership agreement that existed immediately before the vote required to become a limited liability partnership under ORS 67.600 (Eligibility for registration as limited liability partnership) (3).


Notwithstanding subsection (3) of this section, the partners of a limited liability partnership who are professionals shall be personally liable in their capacity as partners to the same extent and in the same manner as provided for shareholders of a domestic professional corporation under ORS 58.185 (Liabilities of employees, shareholders and the corporation) and 58.187 (Revision of limitations on liability in ORS 58.185 to reflect inflation or deflation) and as otherwise provided in this chapter.
