Legal Due Diligence

The due diligence process is all about mitigating investment risks.

By the end of a due diligence process, you should have a fair idea of whether the client or business you are thinking of dealing with, or acquiring, is worth you investing your time and, in the latter case, money. In this regard, a due diligence should be as comprehensive as possible.
