Deal Diligence Attorney

Are you buying or selling a company? Investing in someone else’s company or project? When you are in need of a deal diligence attorney, it is important to make sure that you find a law firm that you can trust to get the job done right – and here at Incubate IP, we are always up for the task.

Legal due diligence refers to an investigation completed to make sure that the purchase or investment in a business is beneficial by looking into potential liabilities. Such an investigation becomes necessary when an individual or entity is considering purchasing a business or investing in one.

When a legal diligence investigation is conducted, it is with the intention of seeking out information regarding the business in question. By analyzing documents and interviewing employees, such an investigation can uncover important information for the investor or buyer that can impact the value of the deal—or uncover risks that reveal that the deal would be an unwise investment.

Once all the facts have been collected by the investigation and analyzed, a potential buyer or investor can then make an informed decision. Deal diligence helps our clients to understand all the assets and obligations of a company, including intellectual property assets, debts, lawsuits, warranties, leases, contracts, and more. We highly recommend hiring a due diligence attorney before investing or purchasing another business to understand what you are getting yourself into.

Why Deal Diligence?

Due diligence is a great way for potential investors or buyers to look into a business and ensure they’re making a sound business decision. However, that’s not the only reason to hire a due diligence attorney –you can also use legal due diligence as an investigation into your company yourself. This is a helpful practice if you are considering a major sale or merger.

Before you begin negotiation, you want to understand how much your business is worth to avoid selling yourself or your brand short. In many cases, such an exercise reveals minor issues that can easily be resolved before a potential investor or purchaser uncovers them for themselves—avoiding embarrassment and even liability.

Conducting due diligence helps buyers and sellers alike to understand both the value of a business and the factors that decrease its value. With this, all involved are able to make an informed decision and ensure that a beneficial deal is struck.

How Deal Diligence Works

The investigation process of legal due diligence starts with preparation, followed by investigation and concluding with results. The part of the process that takes up the most time is the process of gatheringfacts that will then be analyzed to help draw a conclusion.

How long the due diligence process takes depends on how much information needs to be gathered. The more information there is to be investigated and collected, the longer the investigation is going to take. The size of the company also has a lot to do with how long it takes. Depending on the situation, the investigation can be over in as little as a few days, or it can be drawn out for several months. No matter how long the process takes, effective due diligence on intellectual property helps you maximize the value of your company or investment.
