There are many reasons that legal due diligence is important in M&A transactions. But in this article, we will give some main reasons that explain why due diligence is important. 


1. Reducing the risks

A properly conducted legal due diligence on a target company reduces the likelihood of unpleasant surprises after the completion of a mergers and acquisition process. This would provide the purchaser the opportunity to gain as much background information and understanding about the business target. Since no one offers to sell but raises errors in their products. Legal due diligence will help the buyer to unravel some unclear facts about the target company, which helps the buyer to recognize and reduce the risks that they can meet.

2. Understanding of the Organizations

Legal due diligence will give the buyer/investor the information it needs to learn about its target company and structure its purchase. The legal due diligence highlights major and minor issues bordering on the corporate structure of the target, legal ownership of assets (including legal status of real properties, investments and cash-in-bank), contractual obligations of the target, current or pending litigation or disputes involving the target, regulatory or statutory breaches, financial liabilities, compliance with sector-regulators, tax status among others.
