Piper Pritchard offers bespoke, discreet and confidential due diligence services, providing verification and assurance on lateral partner hires by drawing on qualitative intelligence and information resources beyond the public domain.

Demand for such services has grown steadily as firms realise the risk mitigation potential of due diligence material, with increasing numbers of clients insisting on detailed reports as a prerequisite to potential partner hires.

The true impact of an unsuccessful hire is not limited to mere pecuniary loss, but can encompass disruption to established teams, strategies and broader business development timescales, in addition to management and administrative time-waste and reputational damage.
