LLP Name Choice – Are there any restrictions?

Are there any restrictions on the choice of a LLP’s name?

The issues to consider when choosing a name for the LLP (on formation or at a later date) are similar to those relevant to the choice of name for a registered company. This ensures consistency between the names accepted for companies and LLPs. It also prevents a name that is rejected under the provisions for companies from being allowed under the provisions for LLPs.
