Due diligence reports on senior-level executives in other sectors have long been a standard part of hiring and are becoming increasingly common in the legal profession. Making the wrong partner hiring decision or a failure to integrate, can derail business plans, impact on revenue and strategy, and may require a further expensive search to put it right. Our independent and impartial report at offer stage provides reassurance to proceed with the appointment or, in some circumstances, might highlight red flags or areas that require further consideration.
