Name of registered limited liability partnership.

(a) The name of a registered limited liability partnership shall contain the words "Registered Limited Liability Partnership" or the abbreviation "L.L.P." or "LLP".

(b) If a person purports to enter into a contract or other undertaking on behalf of a partnership that is a registered limited liability partnership and does not disclose to the other party that part of the registered limited liability partnership's name that complies with subsection (a), then that person is personally liable on the contract or undertaking, unless that person can show that in making the contract or accepting the undertaking the other party did not rely on the partnership being a partnership without registered limited liability partnership status. Any partner of a registered limited liability partnership who consents to a person not making the disclosure described in this subsection is also personally liable on the contract or undertaking, unless that partner can make the showing described in this subsection.
