Corporate Due Diligence

Mergers and acquisitions can make organisations greater than the sum of their parts. However, they can also put companies at risk if they are exposed to undetected vulnerabilities.

Corporate due diligence checks involve the thorough scrutiny of a business to expose potential liabilities to investors.

As every business is different, there is no one-size-fits-all approach to these investigations. That's why it can be prudent to hire specialists in due diligence to ensure nothing vital is overlooked that could place the business or its clients at risk.

Due Diligence Investigations and Risk Assessments

Due diligence investigations should be completed any time a business or its assets are sold or acquired. A successful business may be plagued by a range of problems or weaknesses that are not obvious from the outside and which require a trained and dedicated investigator to identify.

These could be unresolved legal problems, financial issues, security vulnerabilities or other industry-specific liabilities. Like a bad apple, a bad acquisition will affect the parent company that becomes exposed to the same problems.

As well as ensuring brand protection and security, due diligence can also be useful in valuing an acquisition.

Background Checks

IFW carries out extensive deep web and internet profiling of a subject for background checks that include all social media and open-source information about their activities and associations. IFW Global uses global proprietary databases not available to the general public and most law firms.
