Statutory Agent Services
No person or business likes being sued. However, you like it even less
when someone walks into your place of business to serve you with a lawsuit.
Having an independent Statutory Agent prevents this indignity.
A Statutory Agent can be a member of the corporation, LLC or organization
that is designated to receive lawsuits. A Statutory Agent can also be
an independent person like a separate company or lawyer. Regardless of
whether your Statutory Agent is an employee or someone unrelated to the
company, they must be registered with the Arizona Corporation Commission.
If you designate a new Statutory Agent but do not update the Corporation
Commission, you may be responsible for papers delivered to the old agent
even after you have made the change internally.
Once you have registered Owens and Perkins as your Statutory Agent with
the Secretary of State, you do not have to worry about your business being
interrupted by unanticipated lawsuits. Instead, the lawsuits must be brought
to Owens and Perkins where we confirm receipt and can offer preliminary
advice regarding the best course to pursue. You also have a lawyer aware
of the legal action from the very beginning. If necessary, a lawyer can
step in and defend you from the outset.
