Legal due diligence

A legal audit is a recommended, and sometimes even necessary, instrument in the event of a planned acquisition, merger or transformation of a company. It is also usually necessary in the event of a change in shareholding structure, significant changes or expansion of the scope of operations.

It allows to achieve reliable transparency of the company’s activities, the actions of the Board of Directors, as well as to assess the profitability of the actions taken and contracts concluded. This is often crucial for the effectiveness of discussions with contractors, but also with shareholders themselves.

The scope of the legal audit carried out depends on the specifics of the enterprise, its structure and size. As a rule, the audit can be carried out comprehensively or in selected areas – according to the order, e.g. only in terms of analyzing business contracts or regulations and employee agreements.
