Understanding the U.S. Legal System’s Role in Due Diligence

What to take into account in a background check

When it comes to pre-investment due diligence, a basic understanding of the U.S. legal system can be invaluable, particularly in regard to background checks. In the event that a red flag appears on the legal section of a background check, you are better equipped to evaluate the result when you have a general sense of how the judicial system works. 


In this recorded webinar we discuss:

We take a closer look at the U.S. judicial system and highlight the importance of its nuances in the context of your decision-making process.

The differences between various nuances in a legal case and why they’re important for investors to understand.

The differences between federal and state courts and what investors should look out for when reviewing these types of cases on a background check.

Examples of federal and state cases such as Securities Class Actions, a very typical federal case that we see on Intelligo background checks.

Possible adverse association with being a defendant and the instances where you can be sued and have that not be a flag against you.
