In the current credit markets where corporate borrowers are seeking new capital and banks are finding it hard to lend, a number of key issues come to the fore. Being able to effectively take collateral, perfect your security interest and then 'collect out' on enforcement have never been more critical. When lending across borders in Europe, these issues become significantly more complex because of the multiple jurisdictions and differing legal systems.
On October 22, a team of finance and bankruptcy partners from our New York and London offices will be exploring these issues, and looking at some of the practical solutions and alternative structures that can be employed. We will be looking at how concepts surrounding the structuring of transactions and taking collateral differ between the US and Europe. We will also be looking at a number of alternative techniques that can provide the best solution for you and your customers, including the use of hybrid ABL and securitization techniques which are becoming increasingly common in Europe as a way of filling the gap left behind by the traditional leveraged loan market.
