The Problem

A Fortune 500 multinational computer technology company based in the United States was considering acquiring another company. The client needed a due diligence analysis and report on the target company’s customer contracts. Purpose Legal completed the review, analysis, and summary of 750 contracts for the merger and acquisition (M&A) due diligence review.

The Purpose-Build Solution

Purpose Legal assembled a resolute team of 10 highly skilled, full-time attorneys in India to perform a comprehensive due diligence review of the target company’s customer contracts. The team created contract review templates to capture and summarize the material information from the contracts and performed a high-level analysis of the contractual clauses. The team also prepared high-level analysis reports for the client on the problematic and non-standard provisions. The team communicated with the client daily to provide updates and reports, which helped the client make timely and informed decisions about the acquisition.
