Advanced Loan Documentation

The course studies the structural and commercial side of the loan agreement
  • This course, in it's two day format, forms Module 2 of the Loan Documentation School 

    This module takes place over two short (5 hours) days and builds on Module 1 - our ever popular “Loan Documentation” program. This module gives delegates the opportunity to debate some of the key clauses in the loan agreement (and discussed in Module 1) in a highly practical workshop. For this purpose delegates will be expected to have a working knowledge of the key clauses and issues listed in the section on prerequisites

    The course also looks at how the commercial context will affect the documentation - focussing in particular on project and asset finance. Finally, it also covers the other documents in a loan financing package – the security, intercreditor arrangements and legal opinions and the issues which those documents address.  


    This course will help you :

    • Consolidate your understanding of the commercially important points in the documentation package
    • Appreciate the linkage between different documents in the financing package
    • Master the important legal issues which commonly arise in a financing transaction including what can go wrong, where, and how to minimise the risks of this happening
    • Improve your understanding of intercreditor agreements and of the different types of subordination
    • Understand the key features of asset and project based loans and
    • Understand the impact of security on the documentation and on the transaction process 


    Delegates will need to have a working knowledge of the following topics. These topics will either not be covered at all on this course, or, where they are discussed, the discussion will be at a detailed level, requiring participants to already understand the basics. If you are unfamiliar with any of these please attend the “Loan Documentation” course first

    • Title financing (or quasi security)
    • Default (as opposed to Event of Default)
    • “continuing” Events of Default
    • LIBOR discontinuation and replacement
