Financial and Commercial Due Diligence and Business Reviews


A detailed investigation of a business is essential to ensure that you are fully aware of potential issues that may affect your decision to acquire. Due diligence will almost invariably reveal information or issues that will have some bearing on the structure of the proposed acquisition, or affect the price that you may be prepared to pay.

Whilst the legal process involved in an acquisition should ensure that you have protection against many potential issues, making claims against business vendors after an acquisition has been completed can be an extremely expensive and lengthy process. For this reason, it is important to be fully informed concerning the proposed target before final agreements are signed.

Our substantial investigative procedures aim to reveal areas that are sometimes of critical importance to the purchaser in the decision-making process.

We undertake independent business reviews for various financial institutions to assist them in assessing whether to extend finance facilities to a business.
