Hackett Feinberg advises national and regional financial institutions on all aspects of asset-based lending (ABL), including bilateral and syndicated facilities through the full life cycle of an ABL credit facility.
Our experience ranges from initial structure to documentation, administration, and refinancing; to restructuring, workouts, and bankruptcy. We are recognized for our extensive skill in executing ABL transactions, including our acuity in identifying acceptable levels of risk across many different industries and asset classes.
Our clients consist of lending and financial institutions, commercial finance companies, borrowers, equity sponsors, lessors, venture capital groups, investors, and, at times, sellers, lessees, and borrowers.
At the center of our ABL practice is personal property-secured transactions of many varieties. This includes loans and leases, syndications and participations, chattel paper portfolio purchases and sales, consumer transactions, secured and unsecured structured or financially engineered creditor facilities, interest rate and currency swaps, and credit enhancements for taxable and tax-exempt debt securities. We are valued for our proven ability to provide superior legal counsel and outstanding service at a price and within the time constraints now expected and required in the marketplace.
