Illinois and Indiana Business Entity Formations
The formation of a business in Illinois or Indiana can come with its own set of challenges. An experienced Illinois or Indiana business law attorney can help you create and organize a business entity. Seeking legal guidance can help you grow and navigate any legal risks your business may face in DuPage, Kane, and Will counties, as well as Porter, LaPorte, and Lake counties. There are many Illinois and Indiana business entity alternatives to explore when establishing your new business.
Illinois and Indiana Corporation
A corporation is a legal entity owned by shareholders who are not personally liable for the business’s debts. Depending on your business operations, ownership and management, the corporate structure may be an ideal fit for you.
Illinois and Indiana Limited Liability Company (LLC)
Similar to a corporation, a limited liability company insulates its owners from personal liability when adequately organized. Additionally, different characteristics customize it to a client’s needs. We have provided numerous clients with assistance when forming an LLC, tailoring an operating agreement, and structuring its management.
Illinois and Indiana Partnerships
Just as there are several options for organizing a business, there are several types of partnerships, including:
- General partnerships

- Family limited partnerships
- Limited liability partnerships (LLPs)
