Market entry advisory

The Corporate Due Diligence and Investigation (CDDI) team is unique in that it includes not only investigators and detectives and not only advisors and consultants with Big Four experience but also entrepreneurs and professionals who have built businesses, sold businesses, dealt with employee issues, counterfeit and organized crime and basically run the gamut of problems faced in new markets with their own money at risk.

We offer effective, affordable research for these markets, but more than this, we offer both complete analysis on the following:

  • Local political risk
  • The changing legal scene (we monitor bills going through parliament) for your sector
  • The real barriers you are likely to face in your sector in a given country

The last means that we are not advising on employment litigation strategy or real estate hiccups based on our experience as an intern, but actually on having gone through each of these steps many times over in the region. We can advise on where to hire, how to hire, how to fire, how to select office space, retail space, how to manage sales teams and how and when to simply sell and get out. We also have a wide array of 'scam advisors' in place who have not simply read about such scams in books, but who have been confronted and dealt with everything from the simple dishonest employee faking sick leave to entire networks of dishonest sales reps in the pharmaceutical and publishing industries.

Remember, this is a region where decades of experience trumps business mantras on a daily basis. If in doubt, please feel free to get in touch for a free scoping and preliminary consultation.
