Inquires and More



It’s not what you know, it’s what you don’t know that can potentially have an adverse impact on an organization and its reputation. We are committed to helping clients mitigate risk through strengthening due diligence efforts. From industry shifts and economic cycles to legal risks and cultural differences, innumerable factors determine whether a transaction generates synergies and creates value. Pinpointing, prioritizing, and understanding these seemingly intractable factors can be incredibly difficult, particularly amidst the rush to get a deal done. Inevitably, a lack of preparation and uninformed deal-making can destroy shareholder and enterprise value. Careful diligence and a comprehensive viewpoint of the risks and opportunities on the horizon are necessary to confront uncertainty and manage challenges.

Regardless of the type of investment or business decision—when money, time, reputation, or safety is on the line—due diligence is not a perfunctory exercise to be checked off quickly. Companies and individuals regularly engage Pallas Consultant and business intelligence specialists for due diligence solutions—critical information that sheds light and enables a more informed decision both on value and the associated risk. Whether it be gaining insight on a prospective investment, acquisition, merger candidate, or market or the vetting of contractors, suppliers, and consultants for possible legal or regulatory breaches.

From conducting pre-employment intelligence gathering on key staff or HNW inner circle reputational assessments to reviews of a merger target’s cybersecurity posture, areas of vulnerability, and threats from within, the need for relevant and comprehensive due diligence solutions that can minimize, anticipate, or avoid enterprise risk has never been greater. We are proud of the reputation our teams have built not only for their investigative, analytic, and advisory excellence but for the independence and insight they bring to these types of investigations.

The deeper you dig, the better positioned you are to make informed decisions. At Pallas Investigations, we specialize in fact finding, and, with our international reach, we work across industries and across borders to help our clients avoid potential risks.

While every acquisition and divestiture are different, we employ a disciplined and rigorous approach to due diligence to ensure that all material risks and opportunities are considered in a potential deal. We leverage our global network of functional industry associate experts to deliver customized and tailored diligence solutions that reflect the reality of any transaction in a way that matches the target, acquirer, and market environment of the deal.
