  • Due Diligence – when and why?

    The term “Due Diligence” is commonly used when referring to a process through which a potential buyer evaluates a target company, an enterprise or its assets. Typical due diligence usually focuses in particular on the area of law, taxes and finance with the aim on emphasizing strengths and weaknesses of the target and detecting risks connected with its acquisition. For the sake of simplification, we will use the term “enterprise” or “target” when talking about subject matter of the due diligence.
