About This Site


» Updates Are Ongoing «

  

If you need to do corporate searches, you've come to the right place.  
Coordinated Legal Technologies has compiled the links on this page for legal professionals and others who are looking for quick access to the corporate information available in online searchable databases maintained by the Secretary of State for any given state. 

  

The extent of information available and the way in which it is present varies from state to state. Some states provide only a business name lookup, while others offer search by officer and director names, and UCC filing information.  

  

Please be sure to check the hosting state entity for more information about the type of content offered and the time periods covered.
