Serving Process Local & Worldwide

Research Associates is an established company providing process serving services throughout the UK and internationally. We act directly for both law firms and private and commercial clients. We specifically specialise in the more challenging cases of process which require a degree of tact or subtlety. This service is offered throughout the UK and worldwide.

We carry out instructions based on supplied intelligence relating to the recipient of the process. We believe it prudent to liaise closely with clients, who typically have information helpful to successfully serve a person or company. Research Associates enjoys working closely with solicitors and lawyers to ensure good process, whatever the jurisdiction.

Immediate Service

Research Associates typically initiates the procedure of service immediately upon receipt of written instruction, accompanied by the relevant documentation, as well as copies. We work towards carrying out service within agreeable time periods and, where required, at short notice. Being members of both the prestigious World Association of Investigators (WAD) and the Association of British Investigators (ABI), Research Associates has the expertise to serve legal papers anywhere in the world.

Where appropriate, Research Associates’ personnel will inform clients of any developing situation. Once service has been effected, we ensure that a report and Statement of Service (or, where requested, an Affidavit of Personal Service) are delivered by registered post or courier.

We believe that service, reliability, and attention to detail are paramount to the successful service of documents. Therefore, we guarantee that any document we receive for service will be personally served to our client’s satisfaction.

Please note that Research Associates does not undertake cases funded by Legal Aid.

What next?

Since every investigation is unique and because of the delicate nature of all we do, before commencement of any assignment we suggest you call and speak with us. By talking through the outline of your current circumstance in confidence and asking just a few non-intrusive questions, we become fully able to comprehend your specific requirement. This will also enable you to get to know how we work and for us to give a clear plan of action, costs, turnaround time and to decide whether you wish to instruct us.
