Many companies based overseas may be required by the parties with whom they are entering into an agreement to appoint and authorise a process agent to receive court papers (otherwise known as process) in England and Wales in the event of any legal actions or proceedings brought by the parties to the agreement.

London Registrars offers a comprehensive and cost effective service as a process agent which will enable your company to comply with these requirements when entering into agreements. We will enter into a process agency agreement with you to receive on your behalf service of process in respect of agreements into which your company is entering with other parties.

Our extensive experience of acting for a wide range of clients means you can rely on the service we provide. For example, we are regularly asked to act as process agent for companies active in the credit swaps and derivatives markets. We have recently acted for a money broker in Seoul entering into a series of one year agreements with a multi-national bank based in the UK.

Although many of our process agency clients are involved in financial services, we’re also proud to have acted as process agent for a town in Poland that, along with a water company, was entering into a long term agreement with the European Union under which the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development was co-financing the construction of a waste water collection system.

The team that deals with our process agency work is based in our Central London office. The team is dedicated to providing an efficient and cost effective service to you and is aware that speed and efficiency are prerequisites when setting up a process agency arrangement. We will endeavour to set up your agreement on the same day that we receive your instructions and remittance.

We can also assist your business by:

  • acting as process agent for court actions
  • receiving documents in connection with arbitration proceeding
  • receiving notices under contracts where an independent party is needed
  • acting as agent for overseas companies with a branch in Great Britain.
