We Are CorpNet
Founded in 2009, CorpNet is a family-owned, Westlake Village, California business ran by serial entrepreneurs Philip and Nellie Akalp. This dynamic attorney husband and wife team has provided business formation and compliance services for over 26 years. They’ve helped over half a million entrepreneurs start and maintain their businesses.
Nellie and Phil have been coined as the pioneers of the online legal document filing space. They were at the forefront of the industry when they launched the first-of-its-kind service in 1997 from their small southern California apartment. With a one-page website and a strong expertise in business formation, the company quickly grew. In just eight short years the company became a dominant force in the market, and it was acquired by Intuit.
Shortly after, Nellie and Phil stepped down to focus on their growing family. After a few years the couple decided it was time to step back into the entrepreneurial space, so they launched CorpNet.com.
Their love for law and business helped CorpNet push through a recession-based start and quickly grew to a powerful force in the market. Through the Covid pandemic the team double downed on providing excellent customer service, expanding of their service offering, and focusing on helping others fulfill their entrepreneur dream.
CorpNet is now a top competitor in their space, it’s received numerous awards, and the company employs over 200 full-time employees.
