Corporations & LLCs

Louisville Business Contract Lawyer

The choice of the correct business entity is crucial to the success of a business. It can limit liability, protect the officers and directors from claims and lawsuits, and determine how profits and losses are to be shared. At our law firm, Landrum & Shouse, LLP , we counsel clients on the right form for their needs and circumstances. Our Kentucky attorneys have been assisting business and commercial clients since our founding in 1956 and have the knowledge and experience to guide business organizations in the right direction.

Types of Business Entities

We help businesses establish the entity that helps them achieve their goals. This requires our attorneys to work with clients to identify those goals, learn about their business plans and determine what is best for their circumstances. Our lawyers have helped many clients establish:

  • Limited liability companies (LLCs)
  • Limited partnerships (LPs)
  • Limited liability partnership (LLPs)
  • Corporations, including S-corp and C-corp
  • General partnerships
  • Sole proprietorships

Each of these entities has benefits and disadvantages, including issues of liability and taxation. Our attorneys review these with our clients and tailor the incorporation papers precisely for their situations. We also draft articles of incorporation or organization, help develop employee manuals and contracts, and complete and file all the required documentation with the Kentucky Secretary of State.
