Registered and process agent

TMF Group’s standardised, global registered and process agent services enable an international company without a local registered address to enter into legal agreements and then administer their affairs efficiently in accordance with local law.

Does my business need an agent for service of process?

International companies often enter into legal agreements governed by foreign laws without first creating the necessary registered address through which to accept ‘service of process’.

Our standardised global service provides fully-referenced registered and process agents anywhere in the world, ensuring you have the right registered agent for service of process for your business. They can be empowered to receive on your behalf any legal documents required by contracts, transactions, International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA) agreements and structured finance arrangements.

Our appointment as process agent includes acting as:

  • process agent for contracts, transaction documentation, ISDA agreements and structured finance documentation;
  • the recipient for the service of legal documents relating to actions begun in the local courts and/or arbitration proceedings;
  • the recipient for notices under contracts where an independent party is needed, in some cases on behalf of more than one party; and
  • the recipient for notices on behalf of overseas companies with or without a local branch.

A centralised administration system includes robust risk management controls to govern agent appointments as well as a highly efficient documents forwarding process.
