Registered Agents: What You Need to Know to Protect Your Business

Registered Agent or Statutory Agent

What is a Registered Agent

A Registered Agent is your official point of contact with the state. Every LLC and corporation must have a Registered Agent to accept service of process, legal notices, and other crucial state documents and relay these communications to your business. A good one does this swiftly and attentively to help you avoid serious consequences.

Why choose CT as your Registered Agent

Because Registered Agents are required, businesses often believe “It doesn’t matter who you pick, as long as you appoint one." This is a dangerous misconception. Untrained agents can overlook documents or direct them to the wrong person. "DIY" agents may be unavailable to receive documents when they arrive. These failures can result in penalties, default judgments, and even dissolution. You can rely on CT to handle important legal and state documents promptly and correctly. We've perfected the role of Registered Agent after inventing it more than 120 years ago.
