Due diligence is a process that verifies and confirms statements and views about a business and its prospects. Due diligence reduces the risks of an investment.
Every deal has risks attached to it so that you need to understand what risks to accept and which demand more detailed investigation.
The venture capital (VC) industry uses due diligence to describe what the investor does to evaluate a potential investment opportunity. By definition, investing in early-stage companies is risky. The due diligence process should select the potential winners, identify the key risks associated with the investment and develop a risk mitigation plan with company management as part of a potential investment.

Legal due diligence:
In an M&A process, any responsible management will require a comprehensive assessment of the possible legal risks related to the corporate status, assets, contracts, securities, intellectual property, etc. of the target company concerned. The negotiation of the transaction will in most cases require the intervention of a legal expert as numerous legal pitfalls need to be tackled as early as at the negotiation table. The drafting of the transaction contracts and related documents cannot be done without the special attention from a business angle.
