Due Diligence / Mergers and Acquisitions

Successful due diligence during an acquisition can "make" the financial viability of the transaction. With EnSafe as your partner, we can make the transaction successful.

EnSafe has supported thousands of due diligence projects for our clients over the last 30 years -- across the country and across the globe. We bring a fully integrated team of environmental, health, and safety professionals to support your M&A activities. Our acumen to fully comprehend the uniqueness of each transaction, expertise with complex buyer-seller-lender scenarios and multiple site portfolios, responsive, creative approaches to performing regulatory analysis and translating the impact of material risks in understandable terms to all interested parties are all differentiators in EnSafe's due diligence offerings.

We employ strategies that draw on our skill and expertise in understanding the wider business impact and influence these issues can have on operational and financial performance.
