Security over intellectual property
United Kingdom | 27 July 2020

Traditionally, lenders have taken security over the tangible assets of borrowers. However, within the last few decades, lenders have begun to recognise that intangible assets (eg, IP rights) have realisable value and so potential to be used as part of a package – or even the basis – of security. While taking security over IP rights is now an established process, where the intellectual property is of significant value, careful consideration is required as to the rights to be secured and the type of security to be granted.
