What We Do for Clients
Valuation Due Diligence
Through a risk-focused mergers and acquisitions due diligence process, we analyze the financial and qualitative impacts an acquirer or seller should be aware of, including property insurance, employee benefits, retirement plans, key employee compensation or life insurance.
We design solutions and place transactional risk insurance policies to transfer your risks to third-party insurers. Depending on your deal, policies could include reps and warranties insurance, tax liability insurance, environmental rep and warranty insurance, contingent liability insurance or others.
Structured Financial Solutions
When debt, equity capital or other security is unavailable, we design bespoke forms of insurance capital to facilitate a transaction.
Comprehensive Risk Analysis
We methodically evaluate the organization's financial, operational and enterprise risks and their potential impacts. This process improves the organization’s ability to make informed decisions when determining how best to deploy resources.
