The aftermath of the global financial crisis and the implementation of Basel III have considerably increased the need for asset-based finance – lending based on security, including factoring. NautaDutilh’s loan finance team actively monitors economic and market developments in this area, particularly where they are seen to have an immediate impact how our clients engage in business.
Our lawyers represent both lenders and finance companies in implementing asset-based finance constructions, which have now come to form an increasingly important part of banks’ portfolios of commercial lending products.
Recognised expertise and experience
Our loan finance lawyers possess the level of expertise and experience required to effectively manage the legal complexities of asset-based finance deals. We understand that in the context of this type of transaction, lenders require up-to-date, complete and accurate information about the financed company, and that the effective use of information technology is vital to achieving this. We have extensive experience in negotiating and documenting asset-based finance deals and are frequently asked by domestic and multinational banks to draft or amend their standard documentation.
Pro-active in anticipating market and economic developments
NautaDutilh’s clients benefit from our experience in this type of transaction and from our highly specialised knowledge of the laws and regulations that govern them. The activities of our lawyers are closely intertwined with relevant legal developments in the academic world and elsewhere. This position enables us to anticipate which legislation, political developments, and economic developments impact asset-based finance. We work extensively with clients who are pioneers in their fields and regularly advise them on developing new products.
