Redomestication, also known as redomiciling, refers to the lesser-known legal process of transferring the "home state" of an established business entity from one state to another state. It means keeping your existing business name, credit, and federal employer identification number (FEIN) without wasting time and money creating a new business entity, applying for foreign registration, or moving assets between companies.
— Prof. Chad D. Cummings, Esq., CPA
More specifically, The Law Office of Chad D. Cummings PLLC, serving clients throughout Texas, prepares and files the requisite paperwork with the Texas Secretary of State to establish and redomicile your business to Texas; following that, we prepare and file the appropriate documentation in your former state’s public records to effectuate a dissolution of the business entity there.

Meet Chad

/Texas Attorney and CPA

Picture of attorney wearing suit

I am an attorney and Certified Public Accountant serving Florida and Texas.

Previously, I served in operations and finance with the world’s largest accounting firm (PricewaterhouseCoopers), airline (American Airlines), and bank (JPMorgan Chase & Co.). I have also created and advised a variety of start-up ventures.

I am a member of The Florida Bar and the State Bar of Texas, and I hold active CPA licensure in both of those jurisdictions.

I also hold undergraduate (B.B.A.) and graduate (M.S.) degrees in accounting and taxation, respectively, from one of the premier universities in Texas. I earned my Juris Doctor (J.D.) and Master of Laws (LL.M.) degrees from Florida law schools. I also hold a variety of other accounting, tax, and finance credentials which I apply in my law practice for the benefit of my clients.

My practice emphasizes, but is not limited to, the law as it intersects businesses and their owners. Clients appreciate the confluence of my business acumen from my career before law, my technical accounting and financial knowledge, and the legal insights and expertise I wield as an attorney. I live and work in Naples, Florida and represent clients throughout the great states of Florida and Texas.

If I can be of assistance, please email me at chad@cummings.law, or click here to set up a free meeting.

As the expression goes, if you think hiring a professional is expensive, wait until you hire an amateur. Do not make the costly mistake of hiring an offshore, fly-by-night, and possibly illegal online "service" to move your company. Where will they be when something goes wrong? . . . Hire an experienced attorney and CPA, knowing you are working with a credentialed professional with a brick-and-mortar office.

Client Testimonials

“I hired Mr. Cummings to litigate for me. I hired a company to perform a job and it became a nightmare. . . . He very quickly acted and got the job done quickly for me. He made it happen in a few weeks and I had been waiting over a year. He looked out of me and what was best for me as his client. To me that is what you want when looking for a lawyer to represent you. I will be referring clients and friends to him.“
