Forward Risk offers a suite of cost-effective due diligence services to clients engaging in transactions or contemplating new relationships or initiatives, from red-flag reports to deep-dive investigations of backgrounds, affiliations, relationships, and reputations.
We help clients stay compliant with anti-bribery and corruption and anti-money laundering legislation, including:
We offer enhanced due diligence for investments, mergers, acquisitions, initial public offerings (IPOs), and other significant transactions and events. We also have extensive experience assisting activist investors, target companies, and outside counsel in corporate contests.
We combine global research reach with analytical rigor, supported by in-house language capabilities, including Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Hebrew, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish.
Our research includes thorough examination of news and social media in both open sources and proprietary databases; civil and criminal litigation filings; regulatory and sanctions sources that include best-in-class global watchlists and databases; property records; and other relevant public records in English and local languages.
We dig deeply and tenaciously, and exercise a high level of care when it comes to former names, name variations, and aliases, and filtering false positive results. In addition to identifying risks associated with individuals and entities, we contextualize them and illuminate their relevance in a clear and concise fashion.
