Our buyer due diligence service works with acquirers and lenders to evaluate the ways in which politics, policy and regulation shape an asset’s value.

Our vendor due diligence services focus on supporting vendors in building credible, evidence-based sales narratives for assets. This can be crucial where policy and regulatory frameworks underpin the asset’s business model.
