Due Diligence Practice

Lehman, Lee & Xu has extensive experience in providing due diligence reports and collecting intelligence about Chinese domestic companies and foreign invested enterprises. Before entering an agreement of any kind, and especially a joint venture, it is of utmost importance that you are working with someone you trust. Lehman, Lee & Xu realize the importance of ensuring that your potential business partner represents a safe investment.

Gathering information in China is difficult at best, and the kind of credit history and financial information that can be gathered on Western companies is generally not available for local companies unless they are publicly traded. Information published by the government is available in some industries, but availability may be regulated by local city or provincial offices. One should note, therefore, that the availability of information on a specific company will depend on a variety of factors, including location, industry and legal structure.

There are a number of reports that Lehman, Lee & Xu offers for clients that require due diligence services. Subject to availability and depending on the client's needs and plans, we can offer anything from a simple background check of a prospective business partner to an in-depth report including:

  • Financial and Corporate Verification
  • Import Export Investigation
  • Business associates and affiliations
  • Size and status
  • History of past activities
  • Sources of financial support
  • Main markets and clients
  • On-site inspections
  • Background check on partners
  • Asset searches
  • Investigate insurance claims

Performing a due diligence report can be very useful in gaining a more comprehensive understanding of your business partners in China. In doing reports, we use all means at our disposal to find the information necessary for you to make informed decisions about where and with whom you will finalize your business transactions.
