Due Diligence and Expert Reports

Frequently these are only discernible by those with suffient expertise in the technology concerned and knowledge of the target market segment. We are experienced at analysing the risks that can come from any part of the value chain, including discovery, clinical trials, manufacturing, regulatory aspects, sales channels, and the partners involved. A careful consideration of issues around ownership of and threat to intellectual property that may affect value is also required.
