If a United States of America law firm provides written confirmation of their authority to accept service would service constitute good service or is permission to serve out still required?

Service outside jurisdiction

When serving a claim form on a defendant in the United States of America (USA), the permission of the court is generally required. This is because, the court when determining the application for permission will apply the common law to determine whether it has jurisdiction to determine the dispute.

Permission of the court is not required if the claim falls within any of the provisions set out in CPR 6.33(2).
