Undertaking overseas service without specialized assistance is fraught with risk. Common problems include non-service, quashed service, dismissal of a lawsuit, or the inability to enforce a judgment.
Every country operates under different treaties, laws, and procedures. As such, service of process — let alone evidence requests — are complicated. Moreover, many countries including Canada, Germany, India, and, of course, the US, have federal systems that add additional obstacles by layering on another jurisdiction with its own laws and procedures.
At Legal Language, we’re used to the complications. Working with Legal Language increases the likelihood of a successful outcome. We perform service requests pursuant to the Hague Service Convention, the Inter-American Convention on Letters Rogatory, the Vienna Consular Convention, the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, and via Letters Rogatory.
With almost four decades of experience effecting service in more than 90 countries, we are the leading US provider of international service of process.
