Typical due diligence of project or company is a legal and financial audit, which often aims to eliminate risks during mergers or acquisitions. Knowledge of economic and legal conditions of purchased or acquired assets is necessary to ensure the security of transactions and to develop an effective negotiation strategy.
Our many years of experience, however, prove that classical due diligence is inefficient in case of technology start-ups, spin-offs and spin-outs. In case of these entities, key issues that need to be examined, are issues concerning the value of intellectual property as well as the scientific and technological feasibilities. The situation becomes even more complicated in terms of legal and financial aspects, as from point of view of further development issues concerning intellectual property rights and capital expenditure needed to complete the transfer of technology are crucial. As a result, in companies at an early stage of development, due diligence usually takes form of science and technology audit rather than of legal and financial audits. We are fully aware of the above specifics, so our services of carrying out due diligence of companies at an early stage of development are complex and guarantee our clients comfort and security of transactions.
