The above applies if you're talking about an LP (Limited Partnership). If what you have in mind, on the other hand, is an LLP (Limited Liability Partnership), then you've to remember that LLPs are general partnerships with some limited liability protection in that each partner is responsible solely for his/her own negligence (and those working directly working under him/her), and not that of the other partners. In LPs, general partners have personal liability and are actively involved in the business, whereas limited partners contribute funds and are passively involved. If you and your partner are thinking to become actively involved in your venture the LP may not be the right choice for you. As for the LLP -- although they isolate you and your partners from each other's negligence, they don't shield your personal involvement in the venture.
In many states, owners of an LLP have only a reduced form of limited liability from the claims of the business's creditors. This "limited shield," as it is sometimes called, does not afford the owners the same protection they would enjoy in either the LLC or the corporation. In addition, in many states, the business interests of the owners of an LLP are afforded less protection from the claims of the owners' personal creditors, as compared to the LLC.
