Investigative due diligence has evolved into a vital intelligence discipline that is both distinct from and uniquely complementary to traditional legal and financial due diligence inquiries. It is an indispensable tool to gain and maintain a competitive advantage.

In-depth background investigations about individuals within and behind an entity provide a complete history of operations and activities and an understanding of potential liabilities. Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) is a common reason to request an investigative due diligence investigation, to ensure there are no hidden problems. If you are hiring C-suite employees, adding board members, or shareholders, or engaged in an M&A transaction, it is imperative that the proper investigative due diligence be conducted to identify possible risks, liabilities and any past criminal activity.

Marcum’s investigative due diligence team of professionals can conduct a comprehensive background check covering all of the areas listed below for an individual or an entity.
