Due Diligence

Due diligence is the most critical tool when it comes to acquisitions, mergers, and joint venture partnerships. The best advice given to me by a long term contract attorney was, "A sound business transaction is where the contract benefits both parties equally. Any contract that leverages one party greater than the other party is not a fair and balanced agreement to benefit both parties." The information obtained during a due diligence period is paramount to the success of that venture. All too many times we have clients who come to us after they have engaged with a group that through our due diligence we discover they have been betrayed by fraudulent deceptions. This is an emotional and financial devastation that may take time and money to recover from. Many never earn restitution or see those who defrauded them brought to justice.

Investigative Due Diligence

Today's financial transactions-including mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, debt and equity, venture capital, import-export, buy-sell, financial instruments, letters of credit, are at a greater risk of fraud and corruption.

Third Party Screening

Today's global business through internet networks provide opportunities to have access to foreign vendors, global investors, leverage assets, investments firms that are critical for business operations and expansions. These avenues can yield significant opportunities and profits in the right circumstance.

These opportunities also create the proper environment to produce increased risks for non-transparency of a parties who may or may not have deceptive motives, schemes of possible fraud, corruption, other elements of greed and deceptive ambition that can effect a transaction.

Verifying key risks and validating key persons, collecting all corporate information, disclosures, bank references, trade references, supporting documents, asset reports through third party reporting agencies we are able to validate this information, facilitate communication between banks, legal teams, and security, etc.

Anti-Money Regulations and Compliance

We provide consultation to companies to assure they remain in compliance in accordance to the anti-money laundering regulations. It's important to understand how bank perform their due diligence of your company and the suppliers, vendors, buyers and sellers in trade finance transactions. Applying for specific financial instruments, trade credit facilities for import-export transactions, and manufacturing it's important to have financial advisors who have experience working with banks. We work with many bank professionals from Citibank, HSBC, Deutsche Bank, Standard Chartered, Barclays, UBS, ABN Amro, Novo Banco, and Ernst & Young, including others with the anti-money laundering division and head fraud divisions we understand the policies and procedures in banking. With the increased collaboration of brokers, facilitators, internet referral sources there is more potential for a client to be caught in the middle of a sophisticated fee scheme devised to extort money and investments for you to become a victim of these schemes.

There are regulatory agencies including the OCC, FSA, SEC, FINRA, Central Banks, Interpol, FBI, and other agencies used to verify and detect any type of scheme. The first rule in banking is to know your client, you need to know who you are doing business with, follow bank guidelines and observe regulations and policies of governing countries and states where you are conducting business. We are able to advise you how to create those safety measures by minimizing your risks in any transaction.
