Solicitors working on mergers and acquisitions, management buy outs/buy ins and other corporate finance transactions have to undertake due diligence as a core part of their workload, yet practical guidance for lawyers is difficult to come by.

Due Diligence aims to meet this need by providing a highly practical guide to the complete due diligence process from start to finish. It brings together simpler transactional guidance with trouble shooting, potential pitfalls, points of concern and precedents to provide everything that the company and commercial lawyer needs in a single handbook. This is complemented with helpful checklists, diagrams and practice notes with tips and traps highlighted.

The know how is supplemented with a wealth of fully annotated reports, precedent letters, team sheets and questionnaires, ranging from the general to specific situations such as companies with large property portfolios. All of these are included on the accompanying CD-ROM, allowing them to be placed directly on client files, and giving users a ready made practice toolkit.
