Investment Due Diligence

BWB has extensive experience delivering commercially focused and easily understood due diligence advice to support property transactions or merger and acquisition activity.

We assist companies undertaking merger and acquisition activity to establish any material environmental risks and liabilities, corporate responsibility, carbon management and sustainability issues and to allow for incorporation of these liabilities into the business model. Only by ensuring identified risks and liabilities are fully quantified can the impact on cash Capex/Opex Programmes, Cash Flow Forecasts, and Environmental Provisions be fully understood. Working with a wide range of clients, our Transaction Services team has experience advising on M&A transactions across a broad range of industrial and commercial sectors around the world. With our network of international partners across Europe and Australia we are able to support on international transactions ranging from single site operations to multi-site, multi-jurisdictional portfolios.

Our due diligence team has experience providing environmental due diligence support for both individual property acquisitions and portfolios of over 1,000 sites. BWB develop solutions through integrated environment, sustainability and flood risk advice to help clients make informed decisions on environmental risks and liabilities along with potential future asset management opportunities. By drawing upon the expertise within our Flood Risk, and Sustainable Building Services teams we are able to provide integrated due diligence solutions putting contaminated land, environmental liability, flood risk and sustainability issues into the context of the transaction. In an increasingly low carbon property market, and with increased incident of extreme weather events, this level of expertise is highly important in assessing real estate opportunities.
