ISOs (Independent Sales Organizations)

We at Global Legal specialize in complex litigation and general legal advisement involving Independent Sales Organizations (ISOs), so if you have any issues as an ISO or with an ISO, feel free to reach out to us. In our digital payments day and age,, ISOs perform an essential role, yet the arrangements between and involving ISOs can be layered, nuanced, and complex.

It is essential for you to have all ISO contracts reviewed by an expert payments attorney prior to contracting. Having Global attorneys at your side through the contracting process best insulates your business and relationships, whether it’s with an agent, sub-agent, sub-ISO, or otherwise.As electronic payments industry experts, Global helps you make informed, advised, and wise decisions for your business.

Global Legal can assist if your ISO is the party being sued, and/or assist you if an ISO is suing you. From forming your ISO to keeping your ISO protected, to staying advised of the latest laws and policies, Global Legal can serve as your ISO’s outside general counsel – here when you need us.‌


At Global Legal, we represent processors large and small. Our skilled team of attorneys and litigators utilize their decades of experience to advocate and promote adherence to the processing agreement. Global can aid to initiate vendor suits against entities (including ISOs) for fines and penalties, fee disputes, and uncollected chargebacks and fees. We have ample experience in dealing with these complex issues and offer your best chance to get repayment. If the merchants being sued do not comply, they will be subject to legal garnishment, lien structures, levies, and judgment enforcement.

If you’re the party being sued, we can defend you from ISO and bank lawsuits, vendor suits, and other actions resulting from fees disputes, hardware problems, breach of contract or defaulted agreements, early termination fees, contract cancellation, bank disputes, unfair trade practices, and reserve funds.
