ACQUIRING INFORMATION – MINIMIZING RISKS

Business Partner Screening

How well do you know your new vendor? What do you know about your business partners? In certain situations, a lack of information can pose a risk to your company or your business.
Many people think about starting their own business. While the idea of working independently is exciting, not everyone wants to be in business by themselves. They’d prefer to have a business partner who can share in the financial risks and the rewards of being in business. It’s important to choose the right person to work with to make the shared enterprise a success from the start.

Business Partner Due Diligence - Investigative Due Diligence

It’s crucial to be aware of details about a prospective business partner’s background before agreeing to start a project or company together. If the business partner will be investing in a current business in return for acquiring a certain percentage ownership in the company, it makes sense to find out details about their background before signing any legal documents. The prospective business partner may not necessarily be forthcoming about whether they have a criminal record, if they’re involved in any outstanding legal matters in court (criminal or civil), or whether they have any judgments registered against them. A business partner screening can reveal this type of information and more. corma’s investigators will work with you to conduct professional business partner screening in Germany and Europe according to your business needs, so you can begin any project or partnership with peace of mind.
