For organisations based outside of the UK that have reason to conduct business with UK suppliers, or under a contract subject to UK jurisdiction, or attempting to raise a loan from a City institution, a UK process agent service can be crucial for ensuring service of notices, proceedings or documents can be accepted by such organisations within the UK.

A City lender, for instance, will typically expect a borrower from another country to appoint a UK-based process agent so that, in the event of the borrower defaulting on the loan, they can still receive formal notices in the UK in relation to this.

So, what are some of the particular benefits of a UK process agent service that your organisation from another jurisdiction should be aware of?
