What is a Resident Agent? Do I need a Resident Agent?

The days of the sole proprietor as business operator are generally gone. Today, in order to protect themselves from liability, people generally do business using corporations, limited liability companies and limited partnerships. However, all of these business types are obviously fictitious entities, not real people, and thus cannot be served with legal notices of any type.

The laws of most states thus require such entities to have a resident agent, a person or company upon which legal notices can be served.

As a law firm, we are able to not only serve as your resident agent, but can also prepare whatever annual or other internal documentation you may need to document your company’s affairs and preserve that all important protection from personal liability.
