In today’s ever-changing business world, corporations continuously find themselves involved in complex transactions, including mergers/divestitures, joint ventures, lending arrangements, corporate financial restructurings and hiring of key executives. These situations require the disclosure and verification of information by one or more parties. To the extent that such disclosures are false, misleading, inadequate or incomplete, the transaction could suffer, which could lead to embarrassment, financial hardship, criminal sanctions or loss of license.
Corporate intelligence is necessary for sound business decisions and to comply with requirements imposed by government regulators. Corporate decision makers require timely and comprehensive investigations to verify the “facts” given to them by individuals, companies and lending sources.
In complex transactions, the due diligence process can involve a team of lawyers and accountants to conduct financial and transactional reviews, and USSC, Inc. investigators to confirm the integrity, reputation and professional background of individuals, companies and purported facts.
