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.
