Our asset-based lending team includes more than 35 attorneys and regularly represents lenders and borrowers in asset-based lending transactions. This team has a wealth of experience navigating a broad range of lenders through all conceivable market conditions—including a credit market that requires stricter-than-ever adherence to underlying asset values.

We have represented lenders and financial institutions in a tremendous number of debt financing transactions, developing along the way the know-how to structure asset-based lending transactions in the U.S. and internationally that will even withstand the pressures of a restructuring or an insolvency proceeding.

The firm’s asset-based lending attorneys are skilled in:

  • Documenting the typical asset-based working capital facility for lenders and borrowers.
  • Documenting transactions with challenging collateral categories, including the specialized issues associated with intellectual property collateral.
  • Identifying, analyzing, and resolving bankruptcy, tax, and environmental law issues.
  • Navigating the intricacies of revised Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code and can guide clients through its new issues and procedures.
  • “Second lien” and “last out/B loan” structures (as well as the often complex intercreditor arrangements that arise in these transactions).
  • Negotiating, documenting, and analyzing debtor-in-possession financings.
  • Navigating the waters of the chapter 11 process for the DIP financing lender in connection with a chapter 11 debtor's reorganization process.

The firm represents banks, commercial finance companies, private investment funds, and hedge funds in negotiating and structuring asset-based transactions. The industries served by such transactions include almost every industry one could name, from energy to agriculture, from healthcare to automotive.
