What is Due Diligence?

Due Diligence or Corporate Accountability are understood as the reasonable steps taken to satisfy legal requirements in the conduct of business relations. It allows you to reduce risks – including risks arising from the FCPA (Foreign Corrupt Practices Act) and the UKBA (UK Bribery Act).

Due Diligence and corporate compliance management also allow you to make informed decisions and to pursue takeovers or mergers with more confidence. Unlike other kinds of control (audits, market analysis, etc.), it must be completely independent and thereby rely as little as possible upon information provided by the researched subject.

Methodologies of due diligence services

The other important difference lies in the methodology adopted. Commercial or financial due diligence analyses available information. Investigative due diligence provides reliable and pertinent, but raw, information.
