What is the reason for statutory agents in the first place?

Long ago, you just herded sheep and paid tribute to the lord of the land. Gradually, economies evolved, new company structures like limited liability companies and corporations emerged. These various business entities were created to protect business owners from liabilities and provide tax advantages. Business entities are furnished status that is separated from the people who form them. Unfortunately, it didn’t take very much time for owners to work out that they could evade business lawsuits by personally hiding out from servers of process. So, to close that loophole, most jurisdictions require companies to designate a “registered agent.”
