Conducting robust due-diligence processes can be difficult, but these difficulties are compounded by legal, cultural, and language differences when working across borders. This interactive session will examine real case studies of cross-border due diligence investigations.
Case studies draw on experience in the UK, South Africa, UAE, India, and China and include:
• Uncovering forged qualifications and fabricated CVs.
• Assessing the real story behind career gaps and involvement with failed businesses.
• How to read a Chinese résumé.
• Effectively using referees to determine candidate honesty and self-awareness
The session will be led by Michael Harrington, Managing Director of the Mintz Group’s Mumbai office. Michael has been a corporate investigator for more than a decade and specializes in cross-border intelligence and fact-gathering for sensitive pre-transactional and dispute-related investigations. Michael has managed hundreds of matters around the globe and conducted fieldwork in a dozen countries across Asia while based in the firm’s Mumbai and Hong Kong offices.
