Due Diligence Review

Due diligence refers to the process of research and analysis that is done before an acquisition, investment, business partnership or bank loan in order to determine the value of the subject of the due diligence or whether there are any major issues or potential issues. The prospective acquirer/investor should obtain all the necessary information within the predetermined time and make sure that he makes a good deal and not a costly mistake.


Our Due Diligence team performs financial, legal and tax due diligence and business analysis for organizations that are contemplating investments, strategic partnerships, mergers, and acquisitions or that are looking to enhance organizational effectiveness in an existing business unit or portfolio company.

    • Tax Due Diligence

      When companies acquire a business, dispose of a non-core business or go into a merger, they need to manage the tax risk by means of a tax due diligence. We provide you with corporate tax, social security and VAT due diligence while focusing on risks (including quantifications) as well as opportunities.

    • Legal due diligence

      In an M&A process, any responsible management will require a comprehensive assessment of the possible legal risks related to the corporate status, assets, contracts, securities, intellectual property etc. of the target company concerned. The negotiation of the transaction will in most cases require the intervention of a legal expert as numerous legal pitfalls need to be tackled as early as at the negotiation table. The drafting of the transaction contracts and related documents cannot be done without the special attention from a business angle.


      We perform a full legal due diligence resulting in an assessment of the main risks and provide potential solutions that reduce the risk and provide assistance in drafting the letter of intent/confidentiality and exclusivity agreements/the share purchase agreement (SPA)/the representations and warranties, etc.
