Vendor and Trade Partner Screening

Vendor and Trade Partner Screening | Bishops Services

Know your partners before you ink the deal.

From vendors to investors, business relationships can transform your organization, propelling growth and open new opportunities. New relationships come with risks. Bishops can help you identify these risks before you ink the deal.

Establishing a partnership with a new vendor or joint venture partner requires a level of comfort. The dilemma is how to obtain that level of comfort before you initiate the partnership. Your business must ensure your partner or vendor is not:

  • Buried in debt
  • Mired in litigation
  • Associated with criminal activity

Whether it’s a new vendor or a joint venture opportunity, Bishops can help you mitigate the risk with a due diligence investigation.

Your investigation can be as narrow or broad in scope as needed.

The scope of a Bishops investigation is always tailored to suit your objectives. Bishops' decades of experience, added to our access to the unmatched exclusive databases of Sterling Talent Solutions, makes us the ideal investigators to turn to.
