Preparing for due diligence

Preparing for due diligence can be an all-consuming task for your legal team. Here's how effacts can help you provide all the necessary legal information to your potential investor.

The big due diligence challenge

Preparing for due diligence can be an all-consuming task for your legal team. Your potential investor or buyer might be demanding a long list of documents: from customer and supplier agreements to articles of incorporation, the ownership of the company’s stock and org charts.

You want to ensure the deal is a success, so you’ll often commit significant legal resource to retrieving documents, summarizing information and printing binders out. You might even be forced into spending precious budget on a secure way of sharing your data with your potential investor.
