The Secured Lender

Jonathan Cooper and William Starshak, both principals in the firm's Commercial Finance Group, co-authored "Measure Twice, Cut Once: Five Key Issues That Should Be Evaluated Upfront When Assessing a Cross-Border Lending Transaction," which was published as the cover feature in the July 2012 issue of The Secured Lender. This issue of The Secured Lender was exclusively focused on international lending issues.

With the globalization of today's economy, cross-border lending is becoming increasingly important to both lenders and borrowers. However, especially for middle-market and smaller-market loan transactions, it often remains a challenge to conduct these transactions in an efficient and effective manner.

The article focuses on certain key legal issues which, if addressed up front in a transaction, should increase the likelihood of successful execution of cross-border loans.
