New LARA Policy for Professional Services Corporations

The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) Corporations Division has recently implemented a new policy for professional service corporations requiring that the purpose clause in the articles of incorporation includes the type of license held. Previously, only the type of services provided was required.

For example, the purpose clause for a dental practice must now state that the purpose of the corporation is to provide "dental services through a licensed dentist."

This new policy is not stated in any of the LARA materials. However, Foster Swift attorneys and paralegals frequently work with LARA and can help streamline the creation of a professional services corporation by knowing these LARA policy insights.

If you have questions about the new policy or would like assistance with starting a professional services corporation, please contact an attorney at Foster Swift.
