Factsheet: Do you need a process server?

If you need to serve legal documents on a person anywhere in the world then Sherlock can handle your instructions.

Throughout the UK we offer a fixed price service ranging from P1 to P6 for serving legal documents and serving court orders in England and Wales.

Service of legal documents in England and Wales conforms with the requirements of the civil court procedural code called the “Civil Procedure Rules”. Sherlock’s service of legal documents includes serving court orders for Winding Up Petitions, Statutory Demands, Bankruptcy Petitions and N39/N79a Orders for Oral Examination.

Service under other statutory rules including the Insolvency Rules requires expertise to ensure the service of legal documents, particularly bankruptcy and winding up petitions, is strictly followed within a clear timetable based on court service forms.

Outside of England and Wales Sherlock can arrange to serve legal documents on a “Price Per Application” basis for legal documents UK based in Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Beyond the UK jurisdiction our legal document services extend to Eire, Channel Islands, Isle of Man, and Europe and then worldwide including all 50 states of the USA using our extensive network of agents who are expert in serving legal documents in their own territory and in accordance with local court rules.

In fact when it comes to legal document services the Sherlock team excels at finding a solution for any part of the world.
