    Conducting due diligence investigations for clients helps them know who they’re dealing with in risky situations. Are potential business partners, expert witnesses, senior executives, or investment managers who they say they are? Are they trustworthy, reputable, and reliable? This fast-paced session covers what makes due diligence different from other types of investigations, what PIs have to offer the due diligence process, and tips for building investigative profiles on people and companies.
