We represent and advise lenders, investors and borrowers on a wide variety of matters.
Whether you are selling your company or looking to buy a business, it is important to ensure that funding for the sale/purchase is in place.
Funding can take various forms from simple term loans with existing security to more complex arrangements, say asset-backed funding (perhaps invoice discounting) with mezzanine funders providing further financing.
Irrespective of the type of funding, it is important to ensure that all legal formalities are complied with (as borrower) or provided for (as a lender) within the documentation so as to minimise risk and ensure there are no unnecessary delays.
The more complex funding arrangements also require consideration of prioritisation and subordination of debt and the security position as between the lenders.
