An American example of due diligence as a defense would be Business B, which argues that there is no obligation to Business C if Business A has failed. For example, B and A enter into a trade agreement; B then entered into an agreement with C. Business C concluded that agreement with B, knowing that A and B had already concluded an agreement and that the agreement between B and C was based on the success of relationship A and B. Maybe A provided an input to B that B then modified and sold to C, for example.

Candidates must be self-starters with a strong willingness to learn. If A fails, a chain of events follows, i.e. C cannot be executed and company C suffers a loss. C then sues B on the grounds that B A had not been properly investigated (on which both B and C relied). At this stage, B would argue that it has conducted an appropriate investigation of A (i.e. B would claim that it performed “due diligence” when it entered into the agreement with A) and that C cannot take legal action against B because it did not properly consider the transaction A.

There is reason to believe that [the] content [of the document, of the letter] meets the requirements of the [fraud status] against [the receiving party] unless [the receiving party] sends to the first party, within ten days, a written notification contradicting the content of the written confirmation. (N.D.C.C. 41-02-08 (2)). In short, the people who enter into a contract must reach an agreement. People enter into a contract by negotiating an agreement – the parties set the terms, but as discussed in the next section, their flexibility in setting the terms of their contract is not unlimited…
