As an adviser to a borrower or lender you need to be ready to lead your client through the complex maze of taking and enforcing security in cross border deals. Today’s transactions are innovative and sophisticated often involving different types of security in many different jurisdictions. Whether land, cash, securities or IP are involved you need to know which are the best assets to use as security to back your loan and which specific laws apply in the jurisdiction in which those assets lie.

It is imperative to get the documentation and registration of security right but also to understand the real commercial consequences of choosing one type of security in any given jurisdiction over another. Your client needs to know what will happen if enforcement becomes necessary
