Overview

In an acquisition, your share or asset purchase agreement may require that the parties put a portion of the proceeds of the sale in escrow for a predetermined term.  For any number of reasons, people enter in conditional agreements that are not concluded until stated conditions are met. 

The nature of some business relationships or certain types of assets gives rise to a need for independent oversight of your escrow account by a neutral third party who understands the nature and requirements of escrow arrangements.  Clients can be confident that assets are secure and will be for the duration of the escrow period.
