Too often when a person or their accountant forms a new corporate entity, some of the legal issues are ignored - particularly the need for a independent, unaffiliated registered agent. With a law firm serving as the registered agent for your corporate entity, you will have the peace of mind that you will receive timely and prompt notice if your corporate entity is served with a summon and an attorney will be able to immediately to review and assess the lawsuit and provide you with legal advice on how to answer the summons.
