Asset Based Financing

United Kingdom

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.
