We are committed to building strong and trusted relationships with you at every level, and we recognise the importance of these relationships. We are proud that many of our asset-based financing clients have worked with us for over 15 years.
Our asset-based financing teams focus on receivables and inventory finance and structured trade finance, with a particular emphasis on oil and gas-related financings. The blend of skills and the breadth of experience of our partners, coupled with our extensive European coverage through the CMS network, enable us to provide a cost-effective yet highly specialised service to our clients. We thrive on complex multi-jurisdictional transactions.
CMS’ depth of resource reflects our commitment to asset-based financing clients.
We have a team of over 30 asset-based financing lawyers across the world, with experience of a range of asset-based financing techniques, including: invoice-discounting, factoring and other debt; purchase facilities; lending against security over receivables, inventory and plant and equipment; supplier and vendor financing; and structured trade finance.
Our network of CMS offices across Europe and the rest of the world gives us unequalled resources to advise clients on the international asset-based financing deals they are doing.
We advise banks, insurance companies, private equity funds and sponsors; alternative lenders and funders; invoice discounters and factors; and borrowers/customers on asset-based financing transactions.
We also assist our clients with developing new products, and applying asset-based financing techniques in emerging sectors and original ways, including: retail; private equity; growth finance; debt restructuring and recovery; supply chain financing; and balance sheet management.
