DDC’s approach has produced results, even when other firms had been previously unsuccessful on the same assignment.

Due Diligence Consulting’s accurate and highly detailed research reports consistently deliver information on executives that other investigators and recruiters have missed. DDC’s extensive shareholder activist experience and its differentiated research results help us achieve successful outcomes for our public company clients.

Vinson & Elkins LLP

DDC did a great job for us on a Chinese company, and we’ve since used them on several M&A projects.

The #1 risk in private equity investing in Emerging Markets is partner selection. Detailed and accurate information on low profile executives that reside and operate in Emerging Market countries can be an incredibly challenging assignment. Due Diligence Consulting’s research process and professionalism allow them the ability to rapidly uncover the critical (and often hidden) qualitative and quantitative data that we need. I have repeatedly been impressed with the information that DDC has discovered. Due Diligence Consulting gives us a significant competitive advantage in our investments and portfolio company operations.

Benjamin Griswold
Blue Water Worldwide LLC
New York, NY & Palm Beach, FL

DDC’s professional services are invaluable. Over many years, they have played a very important role in our business risk management. That’s what they do, they lower the business risk of our decisions. It’s not about just checking for a criminal record. You can do that elsewhere for $29, but it may not even be right. DDC provides us with value added judgments on the suitability of a person or entity that we are considering hiring or partnering with, and lowers the risk that we will make a bad and potentially costly business decision.

Matthew J. Edmonds
Formerly President, Atticus Capital LP, New York, NY & London, UK Principal
New York, NY

DDC’s excellence in research and in investigations has been valuable to our firm and to our clients. DDC is responsive and consistently delivers high quality reports. Peter Barakett understands time sensitivity and is always available.

Edmond E. Koester
Partner, Chair of the Trial, Arbitration and Appellate Practice Group
Coleman, Yovanovich & Koester, P.A.
Naples, FL

We have used DDC for investment due diligence, pre-employment background checks and other matters. DDC is incredibly responsive, thorough and available to its clients. DDC’s reports are more detailed and more thorough than those of other suppliers we have worked with, and that level of detail has enabled us to make more informed portfolio, risk management, and hiring decisions. We strongly recommend DDC.

Salman Khan
Managing Principal
Stabilis Capital Management, LP
New York, NY

For more than fifteen years I have used various investigation firms to support my litigation needs and have found Due Diligence Consulting LLC to be the most thorough and comprehensive for the price. DDC has helped me conduct background checks and asset searches, track down elusive witnesses, and obtain information on an opposing expert witness that I was able to utilize to attack the expert’s credibility.

Jonathan B. Bruno
Partner, Litigation
Rivkin Radler LLP
New York, NY

DDC is very thorough, and they have identified issues that other firms would have missed. I would rather pay a little extra for a more thorough background check than miss something that could cost us more later.
