Joint webinar with Audere International. Better safe than sorry: roadmap to transparent transactions

  • Russia


    Why are background checks and intelligence gathering around transactions so important?


    The success of a prospective transaction is often determined by a prudent choice of counterparty. Knowing their backgrounds, strong suits and anticipating potential surprises is what makes a good transaction great for you and your business. Collectively, KYC, legal and investigative tools may significantly increase the chances of not only closing the transaction but maximizing its success, or recovering in the event that it does fall apart. During the upcoming webinar, we will discuss:

    • Pre-Transaction preparation: Understanding your partner or client prior to a deal. Specific tools and what to expect
    • Doing the deal. Aim for the best and prepare for the worst: understanding the context behind a transaction. Who is behind it, how to overcome blockages and ‘deal-breakers’
    • What to do if the deal goes wrong. Preparing for the exit strategy and gathering information to determine the most effective legal process
