Corporate Due Diligence
CORPORATE DUE DILIGENCE
The most important background work in any merger, purchase, financial deal, or real estate transaction is the due diligence process. The due diligence inquiry/investigation is something a buyer conducts to confirm the accuracy of the seller’s claims. A single deal can involve many disciplines of due diligence.
As part of its involvement in any worthy transaction, including small and large scale transactions, our agency offers an expert legal investigation team that examines all aspects of the potential relationship.

SIC is our go-to business investigators but they really separate themselves with the quality and detail of the corporate due diligence product. The amount of information we received was more than enough to make an informed decision we were very comfotable with.
DUE DILIGENCE PITFALLS

Expose Red Flags
Our expert investigators can assist our clients globally. If your investigation requires foreign interests, you’ll need an expert who can navigate through local laws, languages, and customs, especially when case records are not available electronically. SIC uses its global network of resources to provide you with these added investigative capabilities.
SICs due diligence investigation methods are discreet and entirely confidential (unless reference checks are involved). We report the details that matter to your situation. Our reports are never just regurgitated data and include an executive summary for a quick snapshot.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Plan to briefly discuss your due diligence requirements with a due diligence expert to align expectations. Additionally, you’ll want to ensure all relevant data is captured, therefore it’s important to build a productive and relevant blueprint before getting started.
Your due diligence investigation is multi-faceted, some of the data is readily available through online methods. Conversely, some of the data will take time to retrieve phyically with a court investigator. Expect necessary and relevant updates as the assignment progressed.
Our investigators prepare the methodology and scope of the inquiry/investigation, while enlisting experts from within and possibly from outside the agency. Outside dicilolines may involve accounting processes, operational management, human resources, and more.
Upon completion, you’ll receive a detailed, professionally prepared report outlining our methodology and findings. If requested, we’ll provide our recomenstations for further investigation efforts; however, the decision to move forward will always be your’s.
