Louise Delahunty and Nic Bourtin Co-author Article on Importance of M&A Legal Due Diligence

March 3, 2014

In its February 14 issue, Legal Week published an article co-authored by Ms. Delahunty and Mr. Bourtin entitled, “Caveat Emptor – why investigations expertise seals the M&A deal.” The article discussed the importance of M&A legal due diligence in corporate transactions, particularly as national governments and international regulators expand their enforcement efforts. The authors conclude that investigations lawyers have much to offer companies considering potential transactions, ensuring that any potential legal liability is identified and mitigated before the company closes the deal.
