Wolters Kluwer launches due diligence resource checklist for corporate counsel to mitigate financial risk

Considering the recent Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank collapse, the Due Diligence Checklist on VitalLaw® outlines proactive steps on how to assess a bank properly

NEW YORK, March 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. today announced a particularly pertinent new resource for corporate legal departments, which comprehensively outlines what to look for and what to ask about when conducting one's due diligence when working with a bank. Available on VitalLaw® and VitalLaw® for Corporate Counsel, the Due Diligence Checklist identifies proactive steps to gauge if a bank is sound and whether it is stable enough to merit one's initial business or continued business.

The recent wave of bank failures in the United States has put a heightened and valid focus on the security and stability of financial institutions. Even with protections in place, a bank's failure is disruptive to individual and corporate customers, including corporate counsel, causing delays and confusion regarding access to funds. Due diligence requires the assessment of a bank by a customer, and of a customer by a bank, in advance of becoming a customer and continuously after becoming a customer.

"Given the circumstances that gave rise to the failure of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank, it has become increasingly necessary for corporate and legal counsels to fully investigate a bank's interest rate and liquidity risks before committing funds to that bank," said John Pachkowski, Senior Legal Analyst at Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S.

Wolters Kluwer's Due Diligence Checklist covers the following areas on how to review all aspects of a bank effectively:
