How to find the attorney representing a specific company

Recommended Posts

Try going to your state or county court websites and see if there is a case search feature. Do a search for the name of the company and see if they have been sued or have sued somebody else. There could be a lawyer name in the case file.

 

Try your county recorder's website and run a search for recorded documents under the name of the business or of the principals. Might be a lawyer's name on one of them.

 

If those fail, call up somebody who runs the company and ask.

 

If you have a reason not to do that, perhaps you'll explain what's going on and why you want to know.

This response is NOT intended to create an attorney-client

relationship.

 

Try looking at California's Secretary of State website for

information about this company such as who their registered

agent is and also viewing the initial incorporation documents for this company. That may lead to some helpful information.

While the CA SOS web site will indeed provide the identity of the company's registered agent (assuming the company is a corporation or LLC incorporated or qualfied to do business in CA), the "initial incorporation documents" are not available online (and, of course, for a foreign corporation qualified to do business in CA, the "initial incorporation documents" would not even be on file with the CA SOS).  In any event, none of the publicly-available documents on file with the CA SOS are terribly likely to identify any attorney unless the company's attorney is also its registered agent (and, for all we know, the OP is talking about the "attorney representing a specific company" in a particular lawsuit).

What state is involved here?  Do a search engine search and use the phrase, enclosed in beginning and ending quotation marks, using the company's name, and you are pretending/assuming that there may have been cases they were involved in in the past:  "Acme Cement Co. vs. ".  Also, if you were willing to pay a small fee for doing a search, you should contact any local attorneys or university law school departments to see if they have a subscription to legal databases such as Westlaw, where you can do a search using the company's name and if they were involved in any court cases, the names and case numbers for the court cases would come up in search results.

I want to find the attorney representing a specific company, where should I go? The company website does not provide anything. It is a small start-up company and they don't have legal department.

 

The most straightforward way to find out who currently represents the company is to simply contact the company and ask. Apart from that, whether you can find out who the current attorney is just depends on whether there is any public record of matters in which the attorney is representing the company. Is there some reason why you don’t want to simply ask the company itself?

Clearly identified under the subject header of the thread (did you suppose to the California Secretary of State in my and "explorer13's" responses were mere whimsy?).
