All corporations and limited liability companies registered in Ohio are required by Ohio law to appoint a designated person or entity to receive important notices and documents from governmental agencies, courts, and others. These designated persons or entities are called “Statutory Agents.”
Sometimes, in serving as Statutory Agent, the Statutory Agent is named as a party in a lawsuit brought against the corporation or limited liability company. Although courts typically do not hold Statutory Agents liable under these circumstances, such lawsuits can result in significant legal defense costs and require substantial amounts of time.
Black River Corporate Services, Inc. was created by Wickens, Herzer, Panza, Cook & Batista Co. to serve as a Statutory Agent to clients and others requiring this service. Black River will ensure that your company’s mail will be accounted for and delivered in a timely fashion. In the event that Black River is sued in its capacity as Statutory Agent, you and your company will not be responsible for paying the cost of defending Black River in such a lawsuit and will not be liable for any judgments against Black River for serving as your Statutory Agent.
