Achieving growth through merger and acquisition (M&A) or carve-out can be burdensome.

CSC's dependable M&A team can help to ensure your deals are processed quickly and thoroughly.

Dependable registered agent service is your company's first defense against legal action. CSC's Registered Agent service gives you absolute control over your litigation and service of process (SOP) management activities, eliminating unnecessary legal outcomes. And you can depend on us to keep complete records of all your entity transaction, litigation, and SOP histories with the accuracy and security you deserve.

Every jurisdiction requires licenses and permits for businesses to operate—and these filings vary based on your industry. Whether you want to outsource your licensing work or manage it in-house, CSC has the solution to meet your needs. Our team will help you build a strategy that improves your control over the licensing process, giving you more time to dedicate toward other priorities.


A bring down is a verbal status or real-time online search result on official letterhead that you obtain from a jurisdiction. It reflects your entity's status at a certain date and time. You can use it to close the gap between the date of your last good standing certificate and the closing date, or to confirm good standing before you receive a long-form good standing certificate.

Bring downs are often needed for financial closings, due diligence searches, property transactions, assets sales, and mergers and acquisitions.

After a merger or acquisition, you may need to update your corporate records, both internally and with governing authorities like the secretary of state corporate division.

CSC provides deal support through a number of other corporate transaction filings, including entity formations, mergers, conversions, amendments, foreign qualifications, and withdrawals.

CSC can include both domestic and foreign qualified jurisdictions and annual report filings to update officers, directors, management, and authorized signers.
