CONTRACT AGENTS – WHY ARE THEY NEEDED?

Contract agency differs from statutory representation in that it is not representation required by a federal or state statute. Instead, contract agency is representation that is required by a private agreement between two or more parties.

Commonly, contracts will require representation of one or more parties by an agent in a specified jurisdiction to ensure that the counterparty knows where they can effectively serve process on the represented party throughout the duration of the agreement. Types of agreements which commonly contain a provision requiring the appointment of an agent include: loan guarantees, indentures and franchise.

The appointment of a particular contract agent may be made in the agreement itself, or it may be made by a separate appointment letter. In either case, CCS Global can act as the trusted contract agent to reliably receive and forward service of process, notices or other communications based on the destination.

CCS Global will act only as per the terms of our appointment or will remain the contract agent only for the duration of the appointment.
