due diligence in Russia

Due diligence


Entering into any new business relationship involves risk. You need to be certain that you won’t run into any problems or risks that could adversely affect your business. You need to have the facts about prospective partners, investments or acquisition targets in order to make informed decisions with confidence.

Potential issues

  • Understanding integrity of new business partners
  • Assessing reputational risks of sensitive transactions or working in problematic markets
  • Reviewing business and commercial connections of acquisition targets

Due diligence on prospective business partners

Our research and recommendations will help you minimise financial, commercial and reputational exposure regarding potential intermediaries, suppliers and investment targets, and negotiate better deal terms or avoid getting involved with disreputable partners.

Asset tracing

We can track down your debtors’ global assets, including funds, properties and other assets that can be recovered through litigation.

Market entry support

The markets of Central and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union offer many opportunities for profitable investments, but are often characterised by weak regulation and high-level, pervasive corruption. We can help you to better understand the potential risks
a new market could entail for your business.
