On behalf of our clients, Citywide conducts Due Diligence Investigations to establish the industrial character of the organisation with which the client proposes to conduct business. We assist our clients in making sensible business decisions as well as to stay in compliance with the various international regulations in this respect, including the US Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the UK Bribery Act.
Our due diligence enquiries focus on reviewing potential business partners and key personnel, their reputation and commercial backgrounds and ascertaining any potential areas of business conflict or risk. Citywide Due Diligence Investigations are tailored to the client's specific requirements, which include a basic evaluation of information provided through to considerable in-depth analysis of a company or individual's background, reputation and connections.
The investigations may include litigation history, details of any charges against the company / individual, any illegal, immoral, unethical or environmentally unsound practices, covert assessment of operating culture and management style, hidden or undisclosed business interests and outstanding issues which may influence a client's decision-making and their future business interests.
