Due diligence and special audits

Since due diligence is an indispensable part of a company acquisition, we advise and support you with a detailed risk-opportunity analysis of the company to be acquired. You receive the report on these results in a comprehensive and transparent form – it provides both you and banks or business partners with a sound basis for evaluation and decision-making. We are also active for you in the sale of your company. Through targeted preparation of existing data and early identification of problems, we relieve the burden on your resources and increase efficiency and thus also the sales price in the subsequent sales process.

Our services:

  • Special audits according to UmwG or AktG (merger,
    formation audit etc.)
  • Execution of financial, tax and legal due diligence
  • Creation and management of data rooms
  • Plausibility check of corporate plans
  • Preparation of fact books
Problem solutions tailored to your needs
