Dedicated and trusted settlement services

Escrow accounts have become essential to merger and acquisition 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 against unknown risks which might happen after a takeover, or when money is released to the sellers during the closing process.

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

We can act as an independent third party for both buyers and sellers. Setting up an escrow account deposited with us enables transacting parties in the M&A deal to avoid a conflict of interest.

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.
