Probity Checks & Due Diligence

It is often the case that people and organisations start a business relationship with insufficient knowledge of an individual’s background and/or their associates. These very same people are those who you will entrust with your assets and intellectual property.

The key to a successful business partnership is to be prepared. Know your partner, get the information you need and enter the partnership with eyes wide open. To know the background of your potential business partner or prospective employee(s) is to arm yourself with critical knowledge. Being better prepared allows you to foresee dangers and implement measures to mitigate against those dangers.
