Corporate acquisitions go through a process of due diligence, usually embracing commercial, legal and finance due diligence (“DD”). We are experienced in carrying out DD exercises and also at receiving and responding to DD enquiries locally or cross border, supported by GSI Translations where acquisitions involve different languages.
Depending on the sums involved, deeper due diligence may be necessary. The numbers and legal documents may read well
but what are the relationships through the supply chain? Are there any key staff which may not have been identified?
Does the management team have day to day control or is the owner still the key person, even if operating from a remote location?
Our investigation colleagues are experienced in carrying out covert DD during acquisition processes to mitigate risk and help you safely implement your investment strategy. A program of steps to gaining intelligence can be tailored to the specific circumstances.
Data rooms are largely cloud based or on secure access servers so much work can be carried out without a need to be in any particular location
