Why is Due Diligence Important?

Due diligence is critical in the world of mergers and acquisitions, as it allows a buyer to verify important information about a seller such as finances, contracts and customers prior to entering a financial transaction or agreement. Essentially, due diligence makes or breaks a deal, so having an experienced M&A advisor on your side is imperative.
