    Even if you are the sole officer, you cannot represent the corporation pro se except in limited cases in small claims court. Judges in small claims have ordered corporate officers to hire an attorney for the corporation depending on the nature of the proceedings. Usually if the corporation is the defendant, the judges require legal representation for the corporate defendant.

  2. Only in small claims court. Thus, in most law suits a company will need an attorney to represent it. You can find more information on this topic on my website --
