Parties often require funds or documents to be held by a trusted independent third party. LawDeb’s experienced escrow specialists provide the speedy, professional service you require.
LawDeb assists parties to mitigate their risk in financial transactions by holding cash or documents (or both) in escrow pending the conclusion or satisfaction of certain commercial matters. Escrows are often used to facilitate transactions including mergers and acquisitions, asset financing, real estate and construction transactions, litigation and other disputes, and other complex arrangements.
We typically hold cash and documents, for a broad range of organisations, globally, through a dedicated and experienced team based in London, Hong Kong and Jersey.
In addition to independence and integrity, clients value our seamless onboarding process and our speed of execution. We also devise bespoke arrangements to suit individual requirements. While not confined to the following list, such roles are likely to include:
Operating secured bank accounts
Distribution trusts; normally pursuant to Schemes of Arrangement, where we can hold cash and other assets pending distribution to creditors following the satisfaction of specified conditions.
