Many of our corporate law and in-house counsel clients are responsible for setting up business entities. With each new corporation or LLC comes the need for a local registered agent. The attorney must communicate regularly and often with the registered agent to ensure timely receipt of important tax documents, service of process, etc… This is where a national registered agent service can help attorneys help their clients minimize compliance risks as they pertain to potential litigation through smart, efficient automation.
The role of the registered agent managing service of process is to act as a crossing guard, ensuring that everything gets where it needs to go and on time, without hiccups and with certainty. At Legalinc., we have discovered three main factors driving a company’s decision to implement an automated solution for their service of process documents.
- Volume – businesses expecting to handle a large number of documents often seek outside assistance and look to automation to save time, money, and man power.
- Third party assistance – such as with processing or responding to service of process documents.
- Negative experiences – companies who have experienced the consequences resulting from the mishandling of service of process documents.
In a business environment increasingly focused on the bottom line, both in-house business & legal departments and outside counsel are interested in establishing cost-effective ways to leverage technology while also efficiently and effectively managing client paperwork, such as service-of-process documents. One of the things that almost all customer do today is they manage that whole process electronically.
