Nebraska Activity #121552, 1.0 hour CLE
Due diligence, often guided by lawyers, is essential to the success of major business transactions and poorly planned or conducted diligence contributes substantially to a failed transaction. Diligence helps confirm certain assumptions about the value of a transaction and the validity of the business entities involved. Diligence can also uncover the faulty assumptions and problem areas that can easily undermine a deal. There’s also a subtle relationship between the content of diligence and the time allowed to conduct it. In certain deals, sellers have the upper hand and limit diligence, making the process about time allocation and risk management. This program will provide you with a practical guide to planning the diligence process, understanding the most areas of inquiry depending on the transaction, and checklists.
- Most important components of due diligence – what to diligence, areas of expertise, managing the process and time
- Checklists – what information do you need to get, from whom, and on what timeline?
- Hard assets v. soft assets – how to diligence the validity and title to each
- Contracts with suppliers and customers – ensuring stability and visibility of revenue
- Financial records and statements – what should attorneys look for?
- Legal structure of an acquisition target – validity and authorization
- Employee and compensation issues – are key employees happy and under contract?
