The phrase “due diligence” is often used in the law and is a critical component when contemplating a business transaction. Due diligence means thoroughly investigating and analyzing the facts and key terms of the deal before engaging in a major business transaction, such as acquiring a company or investing in a start-up. These deals involve decisions that can have a significant financial impact, potentially involving millions or even billions of dollars. Therefore, it is essential to ensure that all parties involved are fully informed and aligned before finalizing any agreements.
