35-4-404. Responsibility for services. (1) An individual who renders professional services as an employee of a domestic or foreign professional corporation is liable for any negligent or wrongful act or omission in which the individual personally participates to the same extent as if the individual had rendered the services as a sole practitioner. An employee of a professional corporation is not liable for the conduct of other employees unless the employee is at fault in appointing, supervising, or cooperating with them.
(2) A domestic or foreign professional corporation whose employee performs professional services within the scope of the employee's employment or apparent authority to act for the corporation is liable to the same extent as that employee.
(3) Except as otherwise provided by statute, the personal liability of a shareholder of a domestic or foreign professional corporation is no greater in any respect than that of a shareholder of a corporation organized under the Montana Business Corporation Act.
