Due Diligence is not just a process, it is a reality test — a test of whether the factors driving the deal and making it look attractive to the parties are real or illusory. It is not just a quest to find the deal-breakers but a test of the value proposition underlying the transaction to make sure that the inside of the house is as attractive as outside.

Effective due diligence is both an art and a science.


The ART is the style and experience to know which questions to ask and how and when to ask them. It’s the ability to create an atmosphere of both trust and fear in the seller, which encourages full and complete disclosure.


The SCIENCE of due diligence is in the preparation of comprehensive and customized checklists of the specific questions to be presented to the seller, in maintaining a methodical system for organizing and analyzing the documents and data provided by the seller.
