Due Diligence

Due Diligence

Due Diligence is a crucial process to manage the significant risks in a transaction, whether it’s for organisations looking to merge or acquire or for funders looking to invest.

Our Due Diligence process is specific to each assignment, driven by the requirements of our clients, whether they are an external funder or a private client. For each case we adopt a commercial approach, interpreting and prioritising issues in relation to their impact on the transaction.

Investigation work is carried out on site or using a data room and is tailored to meet our client’s needs. The majority of assignments include a review of the following:

  • Business operations of the business.
  • External business environment.
  • Historic and current trading.
  • Financial projections.
  • Taxation matters.
  • Management team and other key employees.

As they arise, we inform you of key findings to assist in deal negotiation. We structure our written findings so that our opinions are clearly conveyed, in addition to the factual content. Meaningful recommendations are made to manage key risks.
