Cianciotti Pens Pitt Law Article on Financing Trademarked Inventory

July 5, 2018

In a June 2018 article for the University of Pittsburgh School of Law’s Journal of Law & Commerce, Raleigh senior counsel Anthony Cianciotti (Debt Finance) explained the legal and practical concerns for asset-based lenders that lend against inventory subject to a third party’s trademark.

His analysis — “Financing Trademarked Inventory: Considerations For The Asset-Based Lender” — covers the Lanham Act, contract law considerations and the potential legal ramifications when a borrower (as licensee) or trademark owner (as licensor) is subject to a bankruptcy proceeding.
