We provide a professional, bespoke and fully regulated escrow agent service. Our regulation and our expertise means that we can tailor the escrow service to a variety of transaction. Set out below are some of the more common uses.
|Corporate Transactions, incl Warranty and Indemnification Escrow||The Escrow Assets are held to cover unforeseen costs or damages protected by a warranty or indemnity, often as part of an M&A transaction. Please see our M&A Escrow Guide for further on the use of escrow arrangements in corporate transactions.|
|Performance Escrow or Project Accounts||The Escrow Assets are held subject to the fulfilment of certain pre-conditions, generally the performance by one party under a separate agreement. For example under a construction contract or other long term commercial contract.|
|Capital Fund Raising||An Escrow Account is often utilised in commercial fundraising, where investors can deposit the funds with a trusted third party to be held until the investment has reached the relevant threshold. At this point all investor funds will be released for the use of the investment.|
|Payment Processing||The Escrow Funds are held subject to pre-determined payment instructions, which can be used to fulfil a variety of commercial requirements such as payroll and supplier payments.|

You can commence the process of appointment by simply calling or emailing us. However, if you’d prefer we have a form designed to collect the key initial information.
