As a company grows – whether organically or through M&A – staying on top of registered agent issues becomes more complex and demanding. Whether corporate secretaries choose to handle the registered agent role in-house or, as most do, engage a third party, they need to ensure the work is handled accurately and efficiently.
A growing business can find itself having to be on top of handling lawsuits and other legal documents in up to 50 states. Failing to do so accurately and on time can leave the company at risk of stiff penalties. This all adds to an ever-expanding workload for corporate secretaries as they become increasingly involved in areas such as corporate strategy, shareholder engagement and ESG issues.

Our panel of experts will discuss issues including:

  • What challenges are created in terms of the registered agent role as a company grows organically?
  • What are best practices for co-ordinating registered agent activities across multiple states?
  • How can corporate secretaries make sure third-party agents are on top of these demands? 
  • What steps should the corporate secretary take in preparation for a merger in terms of registered agent matters?
  • How can the corporate secretary team maintain continuity over registered agent matters and avoid problems during and after M&A transactions?
  • What are best practices for corporate secretaries for reporting to the board on registered agent matters?

Speakers include:

Rebecca Collins, senior counsel, global corporate affairs, Chubb
Andrew Moore, president, governance services, Computershare
Jean Weng, SVP, deputy general counsel and corporate secretary, Voya Financial
Moderator: Ben Maiden, editor-at-large, Corporate Secretary
