Regulatory due diligence

We deal with non-compliance on a daily basis, and we use that unparalleled knowledge to undertake expert regulatory due diligence on behalf of investors.

Is your investment safe?  Do you know everything that you need to know about a business before you invest or acquire it? 

Getting bespoke, targeted advice makes sure that you are fully aware of the risks of your particular industry and ensures that your valuation is not undermined by existing compliance issues.

Whether you are a trade buyer, investor or even a seller, we can use the sum of our regulatory knowledge to examine key issues and risks, giving you the confidence that you have all the information you need to evaluate the opportunity fully.
