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).
