Webinar: Service of Process and the Role of the Registered Agent

By: COGENCY GLOBAL on Jun 30, 2021 4:05:34 PM

Appointing a registered agent when forming a new company with a Secretary of State, when filing with a regulatory authority or licensing division or when the governing law of the contracts for your transaction is in a state where the parties don’t have a presence, is a fairly easy process. There are nuances, however, that are worthy of consideration to ensure you avoid any issues that could result in your company being voided, delays in receipt and responding to Service of Process (SOP) or an unintended person receiving sensitive legal pleadings.

Join us on Wednesday, July 28th, for a review of the role of the registered agent in different types of representation, including what the agent must consider when receiving SOP and a review of both the Model Registered Agents Act and constitutional requirements for adequate SOP.
