What is a Process Agent?

In a cross-border financing transaction, you have to decide which country’s governing law will preside over legal issues. Typically, companies choose New York, London or Hong Kong because they’re financial centers with well-developed contract, commercial and business laws. 

Lenders require that you appoint a process agent to be a contact with a physical address within that chosen jurisdiction. Your process agent will receive legal documents and notices related to your financing transaction, and forward them to your designated contact.

Before you can close your deal, you will need to provide evidence of the acceptance by your process agent. That’s why we work hard to be a process agent you can trust to work with your whole transaction team: lenders, lessors, each party’s counsel and the company, as borrower or issuer.

The global financing transactions we can assist with include:

  • Commercial bank and syndicate lending deals
  • Capital Market debt and equity offerings
  • Private Placements
  • Credit financing
  • Aviation purchase, leasing and financing
  • Pre-export financing
  • Derivatives transactions under ISDA Master Agreements
  • Plus more
