Due diligence speed is a major contributor to deal success. Our due diligence services provide the expertise needed to recognise issues quickly and suggest practical, proportionate and commercial solutions.

We offer experienced, quality-assured legal due diligence and warranty and indemnity advice on a wide range of corporate, private equity and debt transactions.

What do our transaction support and due diligence services include?

We recognise and address any legal due diligence issues which may give rise to delay, pose execution risk or those which may impact pricing. Supporting clients with transaction structuring, risk management, price and contract negotiation and post-completion integration, we undertake legal due diligence on acquisitions, as well as conducting vendor-led due diligence and pre-sale reviews/ data room preparation.

We keep clients fully updated throughout a due diligence transaction to enable timely, well-informed decision making. Our clients choose the reporting styles which best suits their requirements: red-flag, executive summary, or comprehensive reporting. Our specialists are available to resolve matters throughout a transaction, with follow-up post-completion to assist in business improvement and value enhancement.

We provide:

  • private equity deal advisory
  • corporate or trade client advisory
  • reporting to senior and alternative debt funders
  • due diligence and integration advice for bolt-on acquisitions
  • vendor due diligence
  • warranty and indemnity negotiation (for buyers and sellers)
  • advice on warranty and indemnity insurance.
