This three-day course examines the concepts and practices of due diligence: the art of ensuring something is what you think, believe and hope it is. A thorough due diligence process is required in just about every significant commercial decision: investment by existing companies in new projects and ventures; takeovers and mergers; private equity and venture capital investment; and decisions by Government and even NGOs. Failure to do due diligence properly can cost companies fortunes, and even destroy them altogether. Yet it is still often done exceptionally badly.
The workshop will show you the correct way to do due diligence by inspecting different types of case studies provided, and reviewing the necessary procedures. Delegates will review the essential tools required to run due diligence for even the most complex of deals, and will also gain first-hand insight into key issues in the commercial and legal aspects of acquisitions and financing, ownership of assets and pending and threatened litigations.
