About the Teleseminar
Due diligence, often guided by lawyers, is essential to the success of major business transactions and poorly planned or conducted diligence contributes substantially to a failed transaction. Diligence helps confirm essential assumptions about the value of a transaction and limit known and unknown liabilities. Diligence can also uncover the faulty assumptions and problem areas that can easily undermine a deal. There’s also a subtle relationship between the content of diligence and the time allowed to conduct it. In certain deals, sellers have the upper hand and limit diligence, making the process about time allocation and risk management. This program will provide you with a practical guide to planning the diligence process, understanding the most areas of inquiry depending on the type of transaction, and review checklists.
