Failure to prepare
Issues identified during a legal due diligence process regularly result in business value reduction or deals falling over.
Legal due diligence processes can place a huge stress on shareholders or senior management (on top of their day jobs) during an active deal process. Timely and structured preparation is key to:
Identify (and fix) any potential issues which could result in value erosion or compromise the deal
Demonstrate professionalism and organisation to the potential buyer, investor or finance provider
Reduce management stress during a pressured deal process
