Appraisal and Due Diligence

A key requirement of many of the active grant schemes is independent appraisal or due diligence prior to contracting. The grants advisory team at Clive Owen LLP have extensive experience in delivering appraisal and due diligence reports in support of grant applications. Our problem-solving approach is appreciated by both clients and funding administrators alike. Our State Aid expertise allows us to advise on the most suitable aid measures to ensure that the proposed grant offer can be delivered in the most effective manner possible.

We have worked on a national basis, covering projects based across England, on grants totalling in excess of £100m and ranging from £1m to £30m.  We are also currently the appraisal partner for the Let’s Grow North and East Yorkshire grant fund.
