“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” This old saying rings especially true with any proposed business combination or strategic alliance. Your business should always conduct background research on a prospective merger/acquisition candidate or significant business before consummating the deal. This background research (referred to as ‘due diligence’) can help uncover significant issues BEFORE a deal is closed – and this will ultimately save you time and money.
We help our clients conduct that due diligence that includes contract review (can the agreement be assigned, and if so, are any consents required?), to conducting tax and lien searches on the business and assets involved in the transactions. Whatever matters are identified, we help your business work through and resolve any issues that require attention.
