Lender Advisory Services

We regularly provide advisory services to lenders whose collateral includes intellectual property assets.

Our work on behalf of lenders may adapt as a sale process progresses – from supplementing a sale process to assisting in a possible credit bid.  Regardless of the ultimate goals of these lenders, we support them as they look to maximize the value of their collateral, whether through a sale or through a credit bid.

Supplementing Ongoing Sale Process

Sometimes lenders are seeking to supplement a sale process that is already underway, where it becomes apparent that intellectual property or ecommerce assets are important value drivers.  In these circumstances, we work alongside the borrower’s investment banker to supplement the diligence supporting the sale by ensuring that sufficient information regarding the intellectual property and related assets is gathered and provided to interested parties.  We also work to create a robust bidding environment by bringing additional parties from our extensive rolodex of contacts to the table.
