TreMark is a local representative appointed to accept service of legal proceedings, notices, and transaction documentation on behalf of an overseas client in situations where the client does not have a registered office within the jurisdiction governing the transaction. Financing agreements frequently include a clause that requires a process agent to be appointed.

Professional process agents know exactly what they are required to do and understand that their role is important when a financing deal involves cross-border financing transactions. They have the resources to take care of their client’s needs and provide reliable, consistent service for a nominal fee. This gives the appointing parties peace of mind that they are not exposed to liability due to mishandled legal proceedings or notices.
