A background check is a necessary step for due diligence. Our team of trained investigagors ensures that each search meets state and federal requirements, including compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
Due diligence background checks are designed to provide companies with an in-depth understanding of people or entities they are partnering with as well as knowledge about where they are investing funds and resources.
Due diligence background checks are intensive. They are used as a risk mitigation tool when a corporate or business entity is deciding whether to move forward with an investment or partnership. Performing a due diligence check can serve as a fraud prevention tool and acts as a shield from undue liability exposure.
Our due diligence checks are customized for each client, and we will work with you to ensure that the background check meets the legal standard for due diligence to help you avoid liability for failure to perform due diligence.
Red flags that serve as a warning to proceed with caution or back out of the investment or partnership can include things related to:
It is crucial that a background check is thorough enough to catch things that might otherwise slip by unnoticed while tailored to the requestor’s needs. The scope of the background check should reflect the size of the deal. For a relatively small investment, you may only need a preliminary screening. For substantial investments or partnerships, a customized background check complete with enhanced screenings is appropriate.
Transactions of any size and partnerships are healthier when there is peace of mind for all involved parties. The professional investigators at Justice Solutions Group will provide you with the information you need to know to mitigate risks. Our team members will help you determine the significance of any red flags and serve as advisors if needed.
Our investigators can help you decide what parties warrant a reputational review and how in-depth the review should be. When entering into an investment or partnership, knowing the reputational history of other involved parties is crucial. A reputational review of potential parties builds a picture of the involved parties’ overall reputation. Proceeding cautiously in involvement with entities with a less than stellar reputation is a powerful tool to protect the reputation of your own business.
