As you know, jurisdictions are in varying phases of reopening. Many secretary of state offices are now operating with limited staff and delayed processing. However, CSC has established electronic filing with most jurisdictions, as well as processes to manage your corporate filings, transactions, and Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) at normal levels in most cases. CSC has already begun working with our clients to manage their increased volume, and we are ready to do more. Contact your CSC Customer Service Team. We are prepared to take care of your filings, searches, and retrievals based on our deep knowledge of what is available in every jurisdiction.

We also continue to develop and deliver webinars led by subject matter experts in many areas. CSC customers can use these webinars to earn CLE, learn new skills, or refresh skills with the provided tips, procedures, and best practices. You can always find details about upcoming and recorded webinars on cscglobal.com via our Webinars page: cscglobal.com/service/csc/webinars, and our Resource Center, cscglobal.com/service/csc/resource-center.

Through this pandemic, we have understood the importance of staying informed, delivering extraordinary service and making sure you, our customers, understand the most significant legislative developments, so you can assess the impact to your organization and take appropriate action.
