How can KPMG help your business?
Our legal due diligence team consists of dedicated professionals who have valuable experience in various industries. We collect the information available on the target entity which would help decide on further steps, and assess the risks related to the investment and the cost-effectiveness of the transaction. We analyse the key documentation of the target entity, its contractual relations, movable, immovable and intellectual property, labour issues, management contracts, pending litigations and the impact these litigations may have on the profitability of the acquirer's investment. We work closely with KPMG's financial and tax professionals.
What’s in it for you?
You obtain information on the target's legal positions (incl. potential deal breakers) and data you may need for price negotiations and drafting the purchase agreement.
