Charles, as you probably know, there are different levels of due diligence based upon the type of acquisition one is pursuing. In other words, you wouldn't really facilitate the same type of detailed due diligence on a manufacturing company as you would on a financial services company just as the due diligence effort for a $10 million acquisition is grossly different from a $100 million acquisition. Having said that, you have three (3) components that are most prevelant as far as due diligence is concerned when pursuing an acquisition, they are: Financial Due Diligence, Legal Due Diligence and Operational Due Diligence. Where as it has been suggested that you hire an attorney, and I couldn't agree more, depending on certain other specifics of the transaction it maybe necessary to hire an advisor which often comes flanked with counsel, both legal and financial in order to successfully complete the acquisition. As a 16 year veteran in the Private Equity industry, I have seen numerous transactions succeed and several fail as well, but in my opinion having the right acquisitoin team in totality will serve you best. If you have an interest in looking at a check list that my firm would have used in the past I can share that however, I don't think it would be in generic form, and you probably wouldn't want it to be too generic anyway.

Top of the list should be "can you really love doing this business?" If you don't it will be kind of like in a marriage and "staying in it for the kids". Lousy way to live your life. You should first look for all of the things that you will HAVE TO DO every day and often well into the night. I would put that at the top of the list then look at are you going to get burned later on. Jon at Edgemaster Mobile Sharpening

The list below only appears to cover discrete areas of financial due diligence. If you intend on doing any legal due diligence (which would be the smart thing to do in my opinion), you will have to hire a lawyer.
