We performed due diligence on three companies in Russia in relation to a possible transaction between our private equity client and the seller. Our task was to determine whether this was an attractive acquisition target and to specify the political and economic risks our private equity client would be exposed to given both the industry and country in which the company operates.

WSA’s counsel in London, Paris and Moscow assisted in the analysis of implicit legal and regulatory issues in Russia. We conducted detailed political and economic analysis on all three companies to determine their value and positioning within the industry. WSA personnel on the ground in Russia met with with counsel, conducted local due diligence and interviewed sources.
