Background research services

We provide background research into companies and individuals in Greater China to help you manage regulatory and reputation risks, make better informed decisions, and pursue strategic opportunities with greater confidence. 

An essential aspect when performing a due diligence on a prospective business partner is in getting to know who you are really doing business with or entrusting your business to.  This can be particularly challenging in jurisdictions where reliable data can be hard to come by and where information is decentralized. 

Our researchers provide clear, objective and targeted background research into companies and individuals in Greater China to help you manage regulatory and reputation risks, make better informed decisions, and pursue strategic opportunities with greater confidence. 

Our bilingual research combines the use of public record and subscription database information sources in Mainland China and Hong Kong with our own proprietary search methods. 

 

We can help you to:

  • Understand more about the ownership, activities, background, track record, and relationships of acquisition targets or business partners (including agents, distributors, key vendors and customers, licensees, JV and alliance partners);
  • Identify, investigate and protect against incidences of deception, fraud, and corruption (particularly in relation to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act ("FCPA"));
  • Investigate suspicious and related-party transactions; and
  • Develop research information to inform major strategic decisions or disputes.

 

Our services include:

  • Background research on companies and individuals;
  • FCPA-risk related research of third parties;
  • Investigation support; and
  • Strategic intelligence in disputes.
