Due Diligence and Background Investigation

Developing in-depth intelligence is a critical part of the due diligence process. Whether evaluating acquisition or merger partners, considering a joint venture, or developing a significant business partnership, you need to know who it is that you are doing business with. Are they really who they say they are? What reputational information is available? Are there significant business liabilities that haven’t been disclosed? And, can they really deliver what they promise? These same questions also apply to individuals in business or legal settings: assessing a senior hire, evaluating a key service provider, or vetting an expert witness or opposing litigant.

  • Background investigation of individuals

  • Due Diligence investigation of public and private entities

  • Evaluation of ownership, financial viability, liabilities

  • Asset and financial Investigations, corporate successorship, archival research
