Due Diligence and Business Background Investigations are crucial before entering into any important contracts in order to be in a position to take informed decisions and distinguish between perception and reality.
We have investigated many corporations for clients who are interested in purchasing a business, considering a merger, are involved in litigation or are questioning who they may be hiring. Many businesses have hidden liabilities and hidden histories or illicit behavior that few other than a private investigator can uncover.
The process of a professional Due Diligence usually includes gathering information about the company’s and the company’s top management's financial position and history, asset evaluation, in depth search for undisclosed litigation or regulatory problems concerning the company or the top management, competitive position, information about the company's staff, suppliers, customers, and credibility within the industry, verify transactions and terms with vendors, interview former employees, verify receivables, confirm ownership of property, plant and equipment.
More often than not a properly executed Due Diligence brings out a mixture of clear confirmations of certain statements made by the management, discrepancies of some important aspects and totally unknown facts of importance; all clearly laid out and documented by us.
