RD finance attorneys represent middle market banks and financial institutions in all aspects of asset based lending transactions (ABL), from arrangement to closing, including structuring the transaction and negotiating term sheets, reviewing and commenting on credit approvals, performing due diligence, preparing and negotiating documentation, creating security interests in all types of assets, and completing the closing process. We also provide legal advice on refinancings, restructurings, and bankruptcies. Additionally, we have substantial experience counseling clients in complex transactions, including leveraged buyouts, factoring, letter of credit facilities, first lien and second lien structures, and mezzanine loans.

Our firm structures and documents ABL financings involving all types of collateral including inventory, accounts receivable, equipment, rolling stock, intellectual property, and other assets. Our finance attorneys have extensive experience handling transactions across a variety of industries that often involve portfolio companies of private equity firms, multiple layers of debt with intercreditor arrangements, and borrowing entities with complex capital structures. We seek to create innovative structuring solutions to meet either lender or borrower needs. Our attorneys ensure that the lender is fully secured and properly positioned to monitor its collateral and if needed, provide practical support and guidance through the liquidation process.
