Not all Chinese business partners are created equal. How do you separate the good from the bad - the trustworthy from the fraudulent? The answer: Reputational Due Diligence.

In all we do, we believe knowledge is power. Success is fueled by information. Our priority and purpose is to empower your business through high-quality, thoroughly researched information.

We gather fact-based, qualitative information to find out what level of risk your business partner represents. With our findings you might strengthen negotiations based on their true business activity. If a current relationship has gone sour, get to the root of suspected wrongdoing.

We are not bound by billable hours, checking our watches while analyzing valuable information;
We do not delegate cases to interns;
We do not have one-size-fits-all service packages.
Our cost-efficient and time-conscious approach includes tailored scopes and fees to fit our clients' unique needs, with no excess.

We conduct reputational due diligence in the contexts of:

  • Background checks on current and prospective Chinese business partners and investors;
  • Anti-bribery and anti-money laundering compliance (KYC);
  • Investigation and litigation support.

We use non-discreet investigative techniques to address questions like:

  • What is the ownership structure / who is the ultimate owner?
  • Does the company show signs of actually operating?
  • Does it legally exist?
  • Does anything contradict what the business partner has told me?
  • Does the business partner really have experience in my industry?
  • Are there any risky undisclosed related companies?
  • Does the investor have the money behind their offer?
  • Does my current or future general manager have a criminal history?
  • Do my employees have any undisclosed business interests?

The information we provide typically includes:

  • Operational profiles of companies
  • Personal profiles of key individuals
  • Public reputations
  • Undisclosed outside business interests
  • Litigation (criminal and civil)
  • Unethical activities
  • Legal and physical existence of the company
  • Corporate registration information (including changes)
