Investigative due diligence can help identify the actual facts related to any business, merger, acquisition or occasionally, even a client.

Investigative Due Diligence

Investigative due diligence is an absolutely invaluable service to business organizations, venture capitalists and other investors. It is typically used to investigate the actual status of any company, service or fund that a business organization wants to merge with, acquire or invest in. It helps determine just how efficient a particular business or service is and, also, whether the ground reality is the same as the claims or just a farce. It is imperative that any investor get any idea about the kind of individual they are dealing with before sinking any money into them. Many fraudulent individuals have been caught due to investigative due diligence.

How It Works

Investigative due diligence is basically carried out by an in depth analysis of all the records, data and filings of the company being investigated. The first task is the collection of data. This is typically given to us by the client who hires us. Once we receive this information, first of all, we verify its accuracy. This is followed by checks for any discrepancies or omissions. We work together with our client and communicate with a lot of individuals outside the company to get a complete picture of the company. We conduct professional corporate interviews and run detailed background checks to ensure the veracity of the details provided in the interview.

Detailed Methods

Apart from the information provided to us by our clients, we access a wide variety of both private and public databases to obtain information about any investments, ownership of properties, other assets, etc. that the company in question may have. This helps create a detailed picture about the company being scrutinized. We review all the information collected by us to check whether there are any fallacies in the company’s claims or if there are any anomalies in their books. We then prepare a comprehensive report about the company, its assets, business and dealings. This is relayed to our client who can use it to make an informed business decision.


There are many advantages to investigative due diligence for the corporate world. It is a great way to catch any fraud that the company may be trying to hide. It can reveal various things like prior financial troubles that the company has faced. It can cast a light on the company’s business practices and can serve as a measure of how ethical it is. All these factors are very important. Occasionally, investigative due diligence can reveal earlier criminal action that the company may have faced. It can also bring forth unregulated transactions with third parties or any other fraudulent activities the company is involved in.
