Due Diligence Investigations

"Where large sums of money are concerned, it is advisable to trust nobody."

About Due Diligence

Usually utilized to investigate a potential business partner, client or vendor, Due Diligence Investigations can greatly decrease the possibility of business losses and problem clients. The cost of one bad client, vendor, or associate far outweighs the expenditure of a basic due diligence search, especially when you factor in the money that is lost through litigation, lost sales, manufacturing delays, or sheer time.
Much deeper than a standard Corporate Profile Research, a thorough Due Diligence operation can include such additional information as asset verification and searches of courts for local, state & Federal liens & judgments. In addition, deeper looks at the principals or officers may be desired.

Case Study

The client was considering going into business with an individual from another state. They would essentially be merging their businesses. He was concerned about his potential new partner though and wanted us to check him out. What we found made him reconsider the merger: 2 bankruptcies in the last 10 years, his house forclosed in the last year, half a dozen lawsuits & judgments, and the kicker: the person was on probation for theft.
