It's a financial due diligence , doing quality of earnings for clients who contemplate a buy or a sell


So pretty much yes.

there is usually tax diligence as well, the teams often work closely

Transaction advisory is more than just FDD (Transaction Support). There are other groups within such as restructuring, valuation and business modeling, working capital, operational transaction services, divesture advisory, etc.
