While we recommend that you get an attorney to review the contract, a consultant to help with chart auditing, an equipment specialist to inspect equipment etc., the “due diligence” is ultimately yours. Review the documents and financials of practice for yourself. Your attorney and consultant will give the safest advice from their professional point of view. They most likely will not go out on a limb to help you make a decision and may not be able to see the entire picture the way you do. They may be liable for their advise, and ultimately, they will not benefit from the rewards of your practice. Also, some attorneys, accountants, consultants, and other professionals request commissions and referral fees which can create conflicts of interest that may jeopardize the transaction. So you have to weigh the risks and benefits for yourself. The due diligence is yours!
