The Acquisition Due Diligence Process

The acquisition process can be daunting - can you afford to only grasp the basics?All too often, buyers in acquisitions do not adequately review, or factor into their valuation, key legal and regulatory compliance risks. Traditional acquisition-related due diligence and agreements may be able to identify and mitigate some of these concerns, but involving compliance personnel and experts early and throughout the process is the best way to protect buyers and their investments. This topic helps legal, commercial, and compliance personnel understand how compliance-focused review should be integrated throughout the acquisition process. The content also explains current, key risk areas where due diligence resources should be focused, with an in-depth look and anti-corruption compliance. Failing to appreciate and implement a process to identify and mitigate these risks is a costly error that can lead to legal liability, government enforcement, and loss of value in the acquired company. This information is important to anyone who is or may be working on the buy-side of M&A transactions to help protect their companies and clients.
