The Executive Committee of ACC Hong Kong invites you to the following presentation, hosted by Mintz Group Hong Kong.

Food and drinks will be provided. 1 Law Society of Hong Kong CPD point has been accredited. New York and California Approved Jurisdiction policy may apply.

TOPIC:  Building a Background Check – the A-Z of Due Diligence

We help clients invest globally, by investigating locally. Every time your client commits to a new relationship, such as hires, deals, or distributor agreements, you expose yourself to differing degrees of risk. You require due diligence that goes beyond “checking the box.” The Mintz Group has thought through every aspect of background checking, from A to Z and can explain what component parts of a due diligence check are required, under what circumstances, examples of due diligence “fails” and how clients can get the best value and use from third party providers such as ourselves.
