Lenders, creditors and equity investors make critical decisions with each capital commitment – decisions that can put the entire funded amount at risk. Brandlin & Associates’ Due Diligence Services ensure that a disciplined and comprehensive evaluation is conducted before the money goes out the door.

We scrutinize the variables that affect a company’s future performance, financial reporting and credit quality. With experience that covers a broad spectrum of unusual and unexpected situations, our team enhances each client’s risk management efforts. In fact, when we encounter unexpected outcomes, we propose alternatives to enable the parties to achieve an agreeable transaction structure and may provide advice to implement necessary financial or operational changes.
