Tara A. McGuire

Associate, Louisville

As an Associate in the firm’s Louisville office, Tara is focused on Business Services, Corporate Finance & Lending, Tax and Labor, Employment & Employee Benefits. She is passionate about local economic growth and works diligently to provide clients with needed resources to expand and protect their businesses.

Before joining SKO, Tara was a professional chef with several locally owned small businesses, giving her insider experience in the restaurant business. In preparation for her future practice in corporate law, she served as a legal intern to the Corporate Counsel of a national investment banking firm, helping the legal team analyze internal legal matters.

Following the economic downturn of the previous decade, Tara has observed owners of small and large businesses nationwide become cautiously aware of what can happen when their financial interests are not adequately protected. Also, major changes to federal health care laws have created confusion about what benefits employers may or must offer employees. “This is a critical moment for business attorneys, who can guide owners through the structural components of their business entities, such as governing documents and employee benefit plans, to help them better understand their current positions and the internal changes required to fit their future needs.”
