If your company enters into an agreement or contract subject to English law, you will normally be required to provide an English address to which the British courts can serve notice of legal proceedings. Where your company is not incorporated within England then an agent can be used to receive notice of legal proceedings on your behalf.

When you are searching for an agent it is crucial that you choose a provider that appreciates the importance of this service. The Agent for Service of Legal Process is much more than just a mail forwarding service. There are potentially huge legal implications for your business if your agent fails to pass on notices.

Jordans Trust Company is an experienced agent for service of legal process and has implemented a raft of measures to make sure notices are properly served. From software developed specifically for the ASP service, to dedicated personnel and resources, Jordans Trust Company ensures that any notices received are forwarded quickly and efficiently.

As your provider we can act as your agent for service of legal process:

  • Notices, proceedings or other documents issued from the courts of England and Wales and/or
  • Arbitration proceedings
  • You are able to choose from two services:
  • An annual service, renewable each year. This provides you with the flexibility to cancel the service at the end of each year if no longer required; or
  • A fixed period service for fixed term agreements. This provides peace of mind that the agent is irrevocably appointed for the full period of the agreement.

Whichever one you choose, you can be confident that we can provide flexible packages and payment options so you get the most cost effective solution.
