Why Must a Corporation be represented by an attorney as opposed to being represented by the Owner of the Corporation?

 

 

 

  1. Although many of us treat our small corporations as being synonomys with ourselves, corporations are actually a form of a “fictitious entity”. So, corporations are treated as a separate person under the law. Therefore, since they are a separate person under the law, they can only be represented by an attorney. While you can represent yourself in your individual capacity, as any of us have the right to do, a corporation must be represented by an attorney. To do otherwise would be akin to you representing your neighbor in a legal matter, i.e. practicing law without a license.
