An experienced, reliable, and responsive process agent

International transactions can vary greatly from country to country, yet a typical provision included in many agreements is the obligation to appoint an agent for service of process, typically referred to as a ‘process agent’.

Whether you’re conducting a cross-border agreement involving corporate entities, commercial banks, sovereign states, lending agencies or credit agencies all parties must agree on a choice of law clause specifying that any disputes under the agreement will be determined in accordance with the law of a particular jurisdiction. The established commercial laws of New York, Hong Kong and London make them popular choices. When one or more of the parties agree on a choice of law jurisdiction where they don’t have a physical presence (i.e. an address), a process agent is required to act as a representative. The process agent would serve court papers etc. on your behalf (and escalate them appropriately), or simply receive documents and notices under contracts.
