We Proudly Serve As Registered Agents For Your Business

If you own a business, you are usually the go-to person for any legal issue that may arise. That responsibility creates a lot of stress, and it can take time and mental energy away from your core competencies of running the day-to-day operations of the company.

When you partner with the attorneys at Rhodes Ferguson & Stone, LTD., we can serve as registered agents for your business. This means that we can be directly and immediately involved if your business ever gets sued, audited or accused of non-compliance with a government regulation or requirement. While such actions are relatively rare, it is important to be ready for them if they do arise.

Our lawyers already serve as registered agents for about 250-300 small business clients in this part of Virginia. It is just one of the many ways that we build long-term partnerships with our clients and serve the needs of their businesses on a continual basis.
