At least 330 word answer with one reference
A client of the CPA firm of Harston and Mendez is a medical practice of seven local doctors. One doctor has been sued for several million dollars as the result of a recent operation. Because of what appears to be this doctor's very poor judgment, a patient died. Although that doctor was solely involved with the patient in question, the lawsuit names the entire practice as a defendant. Originally, four of these doctors formed this business as a general partnership. However, five years ago, the partners converted the business to a limited liability partnership based on the laws of the state in which they operate.

“Partners Forever? Within Andersen, Personal Liability May Bring Ruin,” The Wall Street Journal, April 2, 2002, p. C1.

“Collapse: Speed of Andersen's Demise Amazing,” Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, June 16, 2002, p. D1.
