Incorporator Law and Legal Definition
An incorporator is a person who is in charge of setting up a corporation. The incorporator files the Articles of Incorporation with the state in which the corporation is registering and files any other corporate documents needed until the corporation is formally registered and recognized by the state. Other duties of the incorporator include selecting members for the board of directors or organizing an initial meeting of the board.
An incorporator can be an attorney. However, it is not mandatory. The person designated as the incorporator is listed on the Articles of Incorporation and s/he will be contacted by the state, if needed. Once the corporation is registered with the state, then there will be no formal duties for an incorporator
