"Registered Agent" for Wisconsin-registered design firm

  • 1.  "Registered Agent" for Wisconsin-registered design firm

    Posted 06-29-2017 09:56
    Are any of my SPP colleagues operating (legally) in Wisconsin as out-of-state incorporated design firms?

    My Chicago based, Illinois-incorporated firm needs to register as a "foreign corporation" in Wisconsin to operate there.
    I need to find a find a "registered agent" to accept legal correspondence on our behalf, since we do not have a physical office in the state.

    How have other small firms handled this?
    Is anyone using a registered-agent services for this? I'd appreciate recommendations?
    Has anyone paired up with a Wisconsin-based colleagues to take on the role?

    Thanks!

    There are companies, usually law firms, that serve as registered agents. I pay $40 each annually for the ones I use in AL & FL. I found them online.
