We Provide the Following Services

Mergers & Acquisitions

Whether it be for a hold back scenario or a good faith/proof of funds deposit, Kroll tailors a transaction to include investment of funds and specific release instructions allowing the parties to gain comfort during the acquisition process.

Capital Raising

Kroll offers escrow and paying agency options to address requirements under Reg-D, Reg-A+, Reg-S and Reg-CF while raising capital for the investment in securities. Having Kroll act as an independent party gives investors comfort that their funds are secure during the process.


Generally required under any settlement proceeding, Kroll establishes the Litigation Escrow Account as a qualified settlement fund where funds will be placed in an interest-bearing account for the sole purpose of paying all Litigation Claims in accordance with the terms of a court order. We tailor the terms of the escrow agreement and the process to meet any specific plan requirements.

Real Estate

Kroll establishes an escrow account for holding funds for the purchase of real estate and ensures that funds for the property are not transferred from the buyer to the seller until all terms and conditions have been met under the purchase contract.

Cross-border Transactions

Kroll has expertise in managing transactions between parties in multiple jurisdictions, establishing the escrow on their behalf to avoid the risk of non-payment, currency fluctuations and unfamiliar legal systems in transactions that may require a transfer of title in shares, real estate, or special assets. Kroll facilitates any cross-border trade between the parties to eliminate issues resulting from meeting local requirements by authorities and until the transaction has been concluded.
