I work for a boutique consultancy in London which specialises in providing Commercial Due Diligence (CDD). CDD is essentially a strategic review of an acquisition target's commercial prospects prior to a deal being completed.
I am fortunate to have joint nationality (US and UK) although I have spent almost all my life in the UK. But, I am now keen to try living in the USA for a bit.
I have been trying to research the market for CDD in the US but I can't find many firms that are involved in CDD. The strategy houses offer it, but their hefty fees mean they only get involved in the largest of deals. The Big 5 and their split off consulting arms also all claim to offer CDD.
However, I am keen to find a boutique specialising in CDD. Does anyone know of any home grown CDD houses in the US. Can anyone tell me about the CDD scene in the States? Is it as developed as in Europe? Who are the leading CDD firms in the States comepeting in the mid-market?
