What is a process agent?

A process agent is someone who represents you or your business when performing international transactions or entering into legal agreements in a country where you don’t have a physical presence or a registered address.

They can act in a broad capacity, including acting as a process agent for court actions, receiving documents in connection with arbitration proceedings and receiving notices under contracts where an independent party is needed, and their appointment is highly recommended when dealing with suppliers, banks or lenders in foreign countries.

An example of a situation involving a process agent is taking a loan by a foreign entity in a country with no presence. The lending institution will require the foreign entity to appoint a process agent who will receive the court proceedings in the case that the entity defaults on the loan.

Service scope of a process agent:

  • Provision of registered address and mail redirection services
  • Facilitation of documents for notarization and legalisation
  • Service of documents relating to contracts, transaction documentation, ISDA agreements, structured finance documentation
  • Deals with notices on behalf of overseas companies with or without a branch registered in the country

Benefits of appointing a process agent.

Avoid complications

If one of the parties did not have a physical presence or address in the jurisdiction where the transaction is taking place, serving legal documents could be a painstaking and excessively complicated process. A knowledgeable process agent can help you avoid this.

Immediate notice of receipt

Likewise, a good process agent will understand the urgency and steps that must be taken upon receipt of such proceedings. They will provide immediate notice of receipt of any legal proceeding in accordance with the terms of the agreements.

Confidence for all parties

Appointing a process agent will give all the involved parties in the transaction confidence that there won’t be a mishandled legal proceeding resulting in a default judgement.
