Process Agency Checklist

OVERVIEW

The Maples Group offers a unique advantage for clients who require a third party to accept legal proceedings on their behalf. Our UK Process Agency services are managed by a dedicated team, who are able to guide you through the appointment procedure and customise documentation to suit the terms of a particular transaction.

We have provided Process Agency services through our London office since 1997. Process Agency services are also available through our other offices and our UK team will direct your enquiry accordingly. The Maples Group is able to accept service of process on your behalf for all types of transactions.

We can accept legal proceedings on behalf of a party that has submitted to the jurisdiction of the local courts, but does not have the ability to accept legal proceedings itself within that jurisdiction, or where a counter party requires a party to appoint an institutional process agent. Our Process Agency services are available, whether or not our lawyers are advising on the relevant transaction, or other services are being provided by our affiliates.  

SCOPE OF ENGAGEMENT

In addition to accepting service of process issued through the courts of England and Wales, we may also accept notice of commencement of arbitration if specifically requested.

ACCESSIBILITY

We provide convenient and timely support to clients around the world, including outside of normal UK office hours where necessary.

UK COSTS

Single Appointments: Upfront one-off fee of £100 per year of term of appointment (minimum £500 / maximum £2,000). No limit on the number of documents. 

Multiple Appointments: Please contact us for competitive pricing. 

Bespoke Arrangements: Flexible pricing tailored to nature of transaction.

Other Jurisdictions: Fee quotes for appointments in other jurisdictions will be provided on request.
