Venture Debt Financing

We offer a suite of legal services designed to support companies as they navigate the complexities of venture debt financing.

This alternative financing solution is particularly suited to ambitious companies looking to fuel their growth without parting with a substantial proportion of equity. Our team provides expert guidance tailored to the needs of each client, ensuring a smooth journey from initial inquiry to final repayment. 

Venture debt, also known as growth lending, is an attractive option for businesses in sectors such as technology, life sciences, and green energy, where preserving equity is often as crucial as securing the funds for expansion. Our role begins with a thorough assessment of the proposed terms of the debt facility. We understand the importance of favourable conditions and aim to negotiate terms that align with our clients' strategic objectives.

We focus on the creation and examination of legal documents, ensuring they are clear, concise, legally sound and protect our clients' interests. This includes term sheets, loan agreements, and security documentation. 

If required, conducting thorough legal due diligence is a cornerstone of our approach. We assess the company's legal standing, ensuring it is well-positioned to enter into a debt agreement. We are also able to evaluate the company's intellectual property assets, which are often pivotal as collateral in growth lending arrangements. 

Once the venture debt facility is in place, we can provide ongoing support to help our clients stay on top of their obligations. We offer support with monitoring financial and operational covenants, managing amendments or waivers, and advising on refinancing or repayment strategies.

We have a deep understanding of the venture debt market and take pride in our proactive approach, ensuring that our clients are well-equipped to handle every phase of their financing strategy. We aim to provide clarity and effective support, enabling you freedom to focus on growing your business.
