Software audits for M&A webinar

Black Duck Legal Specialist Certification Course

Bring more value to your M&A clients.

When clients evaluate a potential acquisition where software assets are a key part of the deal valuation, it’s essential to assess what’s in the code they are acquiring. Identifying open source in the target’s software is key to mitigating any potential open source risk in M&A transactions. Sellers, too, need to understand their code issues before beginning an M&A process.

Black Duck has performed thousands of M&A-related software audits to identify open source code and associated licensing and security risks. Those clients typically need legal assistance to guide their negotiation and remediation efforts.
