We believe that all of our clients, be they individuals or large or small corporations or nonprofits, are entitled to the peace of mind that comes from due diligence. Our clients request due diligence prior to entering into any financial transactions. They know that as a lawyer and as the former Finance Editor for the Asian Wall Street Journal, Philip Segal is an expert in complicated financial transactions and holding structures. He is well qualified to scour financial records of individuals, companies and organizations to uncover any potential red flags.
A thorough check of future employees, volunteers or board members entails more than an automated confirmation of their work history and education. We believe that you can learn the most about a person or entity by talking to those who know them best, including current and past employers, employees, business partners, classmates and neighbors. As former award-winning journalists, we use our professional interviewing skills to ethically and discreetly uncover the information that matters most.
We also serve employees or future board members who want to learn more about the finances and working conditions of the corporation or nonprofit they have been asked to join.
