Legal due diligence is an essential precursor to any investment or finance transaction, and these transactions depend on how things turn out during a due diligence exercise. Effective due diligence can be the perfect guide for making investment-related decisions, and therefore, skills that would help to conduct effective due diligence can be very helpful to any lawyer or consultant advising a client on any investment and loan transaction. If you are working in the M&A division of a law firm or in the legal department of an investor, the ability to conduct an effective due diligence exercise is something you cannot afford to not possess. Similarly, this skill is also very relevant for bankers and financiers.
This book will guide you to approach a due diligence exercise in a systematic manner and identify issues as well as make appropriate presentations in a due diligence report.
