A nominated advisor wanted to avoid the potential for reputational and financial damage by undertaking an enhanced due diligence report on a potential new board member of its client company. The board member had seemed ‘too good to be true’ and had already been approved by internal due diligence checks.


The Corporate Investigations team conducted investigative due diligence to help identify a potential issue of reputational concerns that had not been previously identified when using public sources only. The nominated advisor was able to review its decision, and was in a far stronger position to make a fully-informed decision.
