Retail Website’s Criminal Ties

Nardello & Co. was retained by a US law firm on behalf of a telecommunications company considering the acquisition of a retail website business. The client was aware of certain allegations concerning historical links between the target company’s principal and individuals with significant criminal histories.

Nardello & Co. not only confirmed the details of the allegations but also established that the principal maintained a business relationship with several of these individuals, even after their criminal history had been publicly exposed. Based on our information, the client did not proceed with the acquisition.
