Legal Q&A

When is it necessary to conduct legal due diligence?

Legal due diligence should be conducted before signing a business contract, initiating a lawsuit, making an investment in a company, or lending money to a business client. This will help protect your business interests and ensure compliance.

What should be covered in a minimum legal due diligence?

To protect your business interests and avoid financial loss, you should at least conduct legal due diligence to answer the following questions about your potential business partner or counterparty:

  • Is it a real company, and is it in good standing?
  • Has it filed for bankruptcy?
  • Who are the main shareholders, and are they owned by the government?
  • Who is the CEO / General Manager (the person with signing authority)?
  • Do they have credibility issues? For example, have they been named on the list of “dishonest people subject to judicial enforcement” in China?
  • Does their registered business scope cover what they do?

Why should I hire a lawyer to verify a company in China instead of an agent?

Lawyers in China have access to a wider range of company information than other agents. They have access to Chinese company registries, bankruptcy status, and records of default under judicial judgments from the Chinese court system. Some sources are available only to legal practitioners. In addition, Trustiics vetted lawyers will also provide legal risk analysis and recommendations based on their professional experience.

What kind of due diligence report will I receive?

To initiate the due diligence process for a target company, simply provide their accurate legal name. If possible, please also include the city and province where the company is located, as this information can be helpful in conducting the due diligence.

What happens if the lawyer cannot complete the due diligence within 3 business days?

If the lawyer cannot complete the due diligence within 3 business days, they will communicate with you to explain the situation and discuss the best way to proceed. If necessary, the lawyer will request an extension to complete the due diligence, and the new timeframe will be agreed upon between you and the lawyer.

Is due diligence necessary even after starting a business with a Chinese company?

If you have a long-term business relationship with a Chinese company, it is recommended to conduct a due diligence service on your business partner regularly to ensure the up-to-date status. This is especially important if there have been any signs, such as delayed payments or debt repayments, or if there is any negative news about the company or its controlling shareholders. If you require a follow-on company watch service, please reach out to our client success team at support@trustiics.com for assistance.

What should I do if the lawyer identifies serious risk?

If the lawyer identifies serious risk, you can consult with them for further questions or legal services. You can send a direct message to the service lawyer during the service or find and send a new request to the same lawyer through the lawyer directory.
