On Feb. 8, 2022, Gowling WLG hosted a conference that highlighted insights for secured lending transactions. The event provided attendees with the knowledge needed to more effectively structure security for lending transactions.

Canada/US cross-border lending
Join the conversation with US legal expert, Jeffrey M. Monaco (Phillps Lytle LLP), and Matthijs van Gaalen as they discuss key aspects that Canadian lenders should consider when they encounter US credit parties and assets.
The convergence of lending and technology
Like physical assets or real property, it is possible to take a security interest in intangible intellectual property (IP) like patents and trademarks and still be on solid footing.
In this presentation, Patrick Mc Ilhone, Alex Ross, Lally Rementilla (BDC) & Michael Wong (McMaster Innovation Park) discuss (a) the growth and funding of tech/IP based companies, (b) a lender side view of the value, risk and financing of IP, and (c) key points to make sure your security interest is effective and can be recorded correctly and in the proper jurisdictions.
Financing share and asset purchase transactions
Purchase agreements can be a few pages or hundreds. The transaction may be between arms-length entities or affiliated entities. The details can be simple or complex. The common trait is that bankers need to understand key aspects of share and asset purchase transactions prior to financing an acquisition transaction.
This session covers key aspects of purchase agreements, standard due diligence, liability concerns, and common areas of negotiations with Gowling WLG lawyers Richard Dusome, Sacha Babic and Travis Evens.
Financing real property acquisitions
A mortgage is central to a lender's security on a real estate acquisition financing, but so too is an understanding of the real property purchase transaction. Join our real estate lawyers Stephanie Harvey, Pamela Green and Mark Giavedoni as they chat through key aspects of a real property acquisition that bankers should turn their mind to in the context of a financing including review of a purchase agreement, title and off-title due diligence, title insurance vs title opinions, and common areas of negotiations.
