• Do you lack bandwidth or expertise to integrate, oversee or transition a newly acquired company into your compliance program?

  • Are you involved in the pre-acquisition due diligence process and concerned with successor liability?

  • Are you struggling to address compliance risks identified during due diligence?

Looking for merger and acquisition support? You’re not alone. Many companies lack the budget, bandwidth or expertise to conduct compliance-specific due diligence. Even more concerning — and potentially risky to a company’s bottom line — is failing to address compliance risks identified during due diligence. This kind of failure or oversight can result in large penalties and fines. It is a challenge for any size company, particularly smaller ones, to keep up with daily compliance activities while trying to create, integrate or transition a newly acquired company’s compliance program. Vigilant recognized that need and developed a solution — a compliance bridge — for companies facing these kinds of challenges.
