Specialized Due Diligence for Law Firms

Our due diligence team uses a checklist of materials including a firm's official documents in evaluating the merger or acquisition potential of candidates, and for beauty contest preparation and independent evaluation by companies and government agencies considering law firm options.  Generally, we obtain the materials included on the checklist for a three-year period. 

Examination of  the Big Picture and Minute Details

Effective lateral acquisitions and outside counsel selections require organized management and a clear understanding of the difference between hard information and subjective reports. EOLIS consultants work with clients to insure careful consideration is given to the weight of the various data brought to the table, with a focus on the reliability of the sources  for the data under consideration.
