Created on October 25, 2017




Intellectual Property (IP) is rapidly developing as a means for securing financing. Using IP as collateral presents a variety of challenges, especially where the U.C.C. and the federal IP statutes do not align in terminology or practice. Because IP is an intangible asset, it presents unique challenges and risks.

This course, presented by Barbara Goodstein, a partner in Mayer Brown's finance practice, and Richard Assmus, a partner in Mayer Brown's IP practice, reviews common issues that arise when IP is contemplated for use as collateral, and offers teaching points based on recent case law for IP and finance lawyers alike.

  1. Assess the ways that businesses can use IP as collateral in financing deals, and the unique risks presented by this arrangement
  2. Discuss common issues that arise in the use of intangible assets as collateral
  3. Identify best practices for structuring deals with IP collateral agreements
