Legal due diligence structure for M&A

A legal due diligence review looks at all the legal documents a company possesses. It is important to see how these legal documents are structured and the obligations that exist for a seller. A legal due diligence review will produce the first input for the legal documents that will be used later on in an M&A transaction, the letter of intent and the SPA (share purchase agreement). During an M&A process, legal items are important for the success of your transaction. Legal advisors will want to get a full understanding of the possible legal risks. These risks can exist in the corporate structure, assets, customer or employee contracts or the IP (intellectual property).

In Vietnam, it is not possible to carry out public company searches other than through the National Enterprise Registration Database. Based on information retrieved from the database and the documentation provided by the Target, the Target has been established in accordance with the laws of Vietnam. However, certain documents must be presented to confirm that the Target is fully compliant with all legal requirements.
