Compliance-Driven Due Diligence

Blackpeak specializes in providing streamlined and compliance-focused due diligence services tailored to clients primarily concerned with regulatory issues surrounding third parties. Our research assesses areas such as sanctions risk, money laundering, bribery, and corruption.

In addition, our due diligence may also include research into any undisclosed political connections of the third party in question. Discreet source inquiries play a crucial role in uncovering any political backing that may not be publicly known. We also examine shareholding structures to trace the extent of state-owned enterprises’ holdings in a company.
