What is due Diligence?
Due diligence can be explained as reasonable steps taken by a person prior to signing a contract, or an act with a certain standard of care.
It is a comprehensive assessment of a business undertaken by a prospective buyer. Due diligence is used heavily in the business world, especially new agreements. Its purpose is to assess assets and liabilities and evaluate the agreement’s commercial potential.
