Dealing with Big Corporate Defendants

February 18th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

One of the major frustrations I have is when I have to prosecute a large corporation for a violation.  Serving the registered agent is easy because the name and address can be found on a state’s Secretary of State Corporation website but I’ve yet to get any kind of response by serving the registered agent (but it does mean I can get a default judgment).  It seems like those notices go into a black hole for unresponsive businesses.  So far the most successful thing I’ve done is send a letter with a copy of the ticket to the president of the corporation (I find that information at the same Secretary of State website).  I don’t usually get a phone call from the president (big surprise) but usually the letter is passed along to someone with the authority to get something done  I’ve been fortunate that it usually results in someone bringing the property into compliance.
