Business owners are frequently defrauded by strategic partners due to fraudulent conduct by one or more of the principals. Considering the Enron scandal, Houston is no exception to business fraud and white collar schemes on a massive scale.
Gradoni & Associates have been involved in a number of corporate/commercial related investigations. We’ve outlined a number of our successes here.
The Importance of Background Checks
A comprehensive background investigation before you enter into an association with an individual or business may provide information that would have prevented a loss.
A due diligence investigation regarding a potential business partner, whether it be an individual or a company, tries to uncover details about the company’s management, finances, performance, mission, history, aim, suppliers, clients, industry and any other details that may affect how a company does business.
Due diligence is vital before a merger, company purchase or acquisition because it ensures that liabilities aren’t hidden and ensures that there will be no unpleasant surprises down the road.
