Dedicated and trusted settlement services

Escrow accounts have become essential as a security mechanism for parties in large and complex transactions, including M&A, SPAC`s and litigation transactions. They speed up completion, mitigate potential contractual breaches, and offer reliable support for all parties.

Although there’s no obligation to use an escrow account when making a transaction, there’s also no sense in making a deal without this level of financial security.

Escrow arrangements protect businesses to safeguard their funds and assets according to conditions that have been agreed upon in advance. An escrow arrangement protects the transacting parties in the deal and setting up an escrow account deposited with us enables transacting parties to avoid a conflict of interest.

We specialise in arranging tailor-made escrow agreements that are geared to service cross-border transactions, governed by the laws of many key jurisdictions, including:

  • Real estate financing, sales & purchases
  • Aviation
  • Dispute resolution
  • Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPAC)
  • Stock issuances
  • Online Sales
  • Carbon credits, Renewable Obligation Certifications (ROCs) & European Union Allowances (EUAs)

We act as an independent third party and specialize in tailor-made escrow agreements that are geared to service cross-border transactions, governed by the laws of many key jurisdictions.

Our extensive knowledge of both the legal and operational aspects, quick execution, and a true understanding of the interests of different stakeholders, have made us a global player in our industry.
