The Secretary of State’s Corporate Division (or sometimes another state agency) keeps on record when businesses incorporate. Most states will only provide a small amount of information, but there are some states where you may be able to get information on officers and directors.
In Florida, you can look up who owns a company using http://search.sunbiz.org/. While the information that they provide is admittedly skeletal, and a good attorney is able to cross-reference dates of incorporation, against dates that a judgment was won, and could possibly establish that a fraudulent transfer has occurred to hide assets.
Call the creditors’ rights attorneys at Marcadis Singer PA if you are having any issues collecting a debt in Florida, especially if you believe that assets have been hidden to avoid paying the debt owed to you. Our forte is protecting the rights of creditors.
