There are many issues to consider when starting a distillery business
in Illinois. The first step is to address the business organization
. For example, will the distillery business be organized as a sole proprietorship, a partnership, a limited liability corporation, or a corporation? Choosing the type of business entity
is essential in the formation of a business and involves considering tax related and non-tax related issues. Our Chicago corporate lawyers provide guidance to our distillery clients through the entire process of business formation and offer counsel as to what business entity best suits a particular client’s needs.
Distilleries also need to be aware of strict, complex federal and state alcohol regulations that govern the business. Our business law firm has a keen understanding of the regulatory framework distilleries need to comply with in order to start doing business. Our thoughtful counsel in these areas, such as the three tier laws, will allow Illinois distillery business owners to focus on the important day-to-day business operations instead of the myriad of legal issues.
