Due Diligence is the process of appraising a business before a partnership or deal is reached. Some businesses may look like a good opportunity. However, wise investors will know that a business may not be all that it seems and individuals can present credentials and data that do not always stand up to detailed scrutiny. Due Diligence looks beneath the surface of a company’s operations to reliably establish assets and liabilities, in turn protecting any investment. In a fast growing market investors do not want to suffer setbacks or have to resort to expensive measures to recover assets from business predators and fraudsters who have a stronger understanding of a jurisdiction’s laws and may benefit from various legal protections. We are often able to identify for clients important ‘Red Flags’ such as government connections (not necessarilly a red flag), a poor corporate reputation, association with organised crime, or involvement in financial crime, among other aspects, that would lead a client to think twice before dealing with such entities. We operate globally but with focus given to Portuguese and Spanish speaking countries including Portugal, Spain, Brazil, Angola, Mozambique and Cape Verde.
