Oregon Registered Agent Service Companies
About Registered Agents
A registered agent is an individual or a business entity located at a physical street address in Oregon, whose sole responsibility is to accept legal documents (service of process, lawsuits, liens, subpoenas, etc.) on behalf of the business. Every corporate entity must continuously maintain a registered agent in this state. The registered office can be, but doesn't have to be, the same as one of its places of business.
Most Oregon businesses list an officer, owner or employee for their registered agent and list the business street address for their registered office. Some businesses hire registered agent service companies.
