Private Equity Investors and Corporate Funds

PRIVATE EQUITY FIRMS & CORPORATE FUNDS

For investors that that specialize in the Food (and Medical Foods), Animal Feed, Dietary Supplement, Cosmetic or Homeopathic industries, we have highly experienced regulatory and scientific professionals on staff to support the evaluation and due diligence for product and operational compliance. Evaluating sales or financials is not enough to ensure a deal is solid and that no regulatory risks will undermine your investment or acquisition.  We have one of the most thorough auditing, reporting and regulatory risk analysis practices that will help ensure a solid agreement is made.

We provide investors, private equity firms, and corporate funds with regulatory guidance on investment opportunities, acquisitions, in-licensing and related due diligence to ensure that the given products, operations and strategy are compliant. Our phased and risk-based approach helps to quickly uncover areas that require remediation or that simply re-affirm the overall investment strategy is sound for your new management team and more importantly your investors.
