DUE DILIGENCE


Introducing Due Diligence advice from Andrew Jackson Solicitors…


Andrew Jackson Solicitors, a leader in the field of renewable energy business advice, have been regularly contributing articles to our magazines right from the beginning.


CONSIDERATION FOR DUE DILIGENCE


The need for type and extent of due diligence will depend heavily upon the nature of the transaction being undertaken.


Essentially it is an information gathering exercise concerning a particular project, company or transaction and needs to be managed effectively to ensure that all the appropriate risks are identified and properly evaluated.


THE PROCESS


In essence the process is an audit of the legal, financial and business risks associated with a project, transaction or company which, if carried out effectively will allow the risks to be properly evaluated and provided for.


It is not a substitute for contractual protection but assists in the exercise of determining what the risks are and what protection you need to put in place and how best to achieve it.


TIME CONSIDERATIONS The focus of any due diligence investigation will depend on the nature of


the transaction and its purpose together with the practical realities of the situation e.g. how much time is there to conduct the investigation?


The exercise will inform the extent of any retention needed, the warranty cover, the contractual terms and the need for and extent of security for performance required. It is important that the team carrying out the due diligence is made up of the right members with the appropriate skills to carry out the exercise.


ASSESSMENT OF RISK


As part of the enquiry, consideration will need to be given to the industry norms in terms of risk as well as the risks specific to the project or transaction in hand and the interests to be protected.
