Business information can be an important source of intelligence for attorneys.  Carol Hassler from the Wisconsin State Law Library has compiled an excellent guide to “Researching Private and Public Businesses, Specialized Industries” in the latest Inside Track from the State Bar of Wisconsin.

She offers advice on:

  • Requesting Annual Reports
  • Finding Registered Agents and Officers
  • Examining UCC Filings
  • Researching Public Companies
  • Finding Information for Specialized Industries
  • Locating Industry Data

This guide is part of the Legal Research 101 series, a partnership between the State Bar and the Law Librarians Association of Wisconsin.  These research guides, written by law librarians, offer advice on researching many areas of Wisconsin law.
