Research into a potential business partner in the UAE
1 April 2020
A multinational company looking to invest in the UAE was in talks with a local businessman who was offering to be their local partner in the country. Our client had been told it was impossible to ascertain details of the potential local partner’s corporate interests and affiliations, as part of a due diligence exercise.
Diligencia specialises in providing reliable and authentic information for organisations and individuals in the Middle East and Africa, often areas where it is traditionally difficult to obtain legal entity data. In this case we were able to identify and compile a full list of the individual’s shareholding interests and directorships in the UAE, which the client was then able to access and navigate using our online platform www.ClarifiedBy.com. For the same client we then went on to complete other due diligence on the individual, including local media research and checks for involvement in any civil and criminal litigation cases with local UAE courts.
Our client entered into the partnership with the assurance that there was no conflict of interest involved.
Diligencia provides specialist business intelligence and due diligence services based exclusively on primary sources in the Middle East & Africa.
