Legal Due Diligence

In asset and equity transfer operations, business succession occupies a significant part of the attention of entrepreneurs who see themselves as candidates for successors. The prior assessment of business risks through legal due diligence contributes to the decision-making process, reduces uncertainties, and influences the strategic planning of the business.
