    About LE&AS

Legal Escrow and Arbitration Services Limited is the second largest escrow provider in the UK and our aim is to provide a high quality niche legal service to our clients at an affordable price. We act for over 200 local and central government organizations, as well as FTSE 100 companies in the private sector.  With over 20 years experience of software contract negotiations and legal expertise LE&AS' was ideally suited to understand the needs and complexities of putting together an equitable agreement that would support all parties.

Our structure provides inherent flexibility, allowing us to rapidly respond, delivering specialist packages to organisations from smaller niche software providers to government bodies and international groups. By working with us we believe you'll quickly understand why this and the high standards we maintain, have resulted in so many long-term relationships.

Our reputation is founded on the ability to evolve, continually refocusing our strengths to meet new challenges, adapt to ever changing needs and add value at every opportunity. This philosophy ensures you'll always receive a considered, best fit and best value solution at all times.

We are ISO9001 compliant and a supplier to the Government Procurement Service. We are the escrow partner for SOCITM which is the largest independent consultancy service to the Public Sector. All our escrow negotiations and escrow drafting work is handled by solicitors with at least 10 years commercial and intellectual property experience. We also provide consultancy work on:

  • Intellectual Property assignments and novations
  • Intellectual Property acquisitions and disposals
  • Software licensing terms and conditions
  • SaaS licensing terms and conditions
  • Terms and conditions of Sale of Software
  • Support and Maintenance Agreements

As Software services evolve rapidly and are now moving towards Cloud based services LE&AS recognise that traditional escrow agreements do not offer the level of cover that SaaS Users require. LE&AS' “New Breed” SaaS Escrow agreements have been specifically developed to give SaaS Users peace of mind that their business continuity is the key priority, at a price that is not cost prohibitive.
