private equity group was approached with an opportunity to acquire an asset from a seller whose integrity was uncertain.

As is common with digital asset transactions, there would not be an opportunity to meet in person and a significant language barrier restricted negotiations.

Throughout the due diligence and negotiation process, we uncovered several risks related to the seller’s behavior.

We were able to mitigate these risks, verify the value of the asset in question, and leverage discovery of multiple relevant concerns to successfully negotiate a 28.57% decrease from the original asking price.
