Risky Deal

Grapevine was commissioned by a client to assess the level of risk associated with purchasing a Chinese fugitive’s corporate assets in northern China.


Among the various issues associated with the deal, the client’s primary concerns revolve around the loss of major contracts as well as the possibility of the fugitive’s company being implicated in anti-corruption investigations.


Based on our findings, we concluded that the risks related to purchasing the assets were minimal as we determined that the authorities do not have any intention of implicating the company in the fugitive’s ordeal.
