In 1961 the Ohio General Assembly enacted Chapter 1785 of the Ohio Revised Code authorizing the creation of professional associations. This legislation was deficient when enacted. Yet, despite criticism of the act and adequate opportunity, the Ohio Legislature has failed to reform this chapter of the Revised Code. This article will look at some of the background out of which the Ohio professional association legislation arose and at the substance and deficiencies of that legislation. Comments will be made on how the proposed Ohio Professional Corporation Act, promulgated in 1979 by the Corporation Law Committee of the Ohio Bar Association, would change or clarify current law.
