Buttonwood Due Diligence, LLC was founded in 2004 by Dana Woodbury, award-winning due diligence professional.

Dana Woodbury had the mandate to provide insightful and timely third-party due diligence to our Client Community of Registered Investment Advisors, Broker-Dealers, Family Offices, and Product Sponsors. Buttonwood’s focus on producing impartial, comprehensive reviews of alternative investments and their sponsors while placing a premium on client service has helped the company grow to serve hundreds of clients throughout the U.S. and abroad. Today, Buttonwood consults with a wide range of investment professionals and product sponsors and produces due diligence reviews on a diverse and varied group of sponsors and investment product offerings. 

Completing this important work is Buttonwood’s highly capable and qualified team that includes MBAs, JDs, MAs, CPAs, and CCIMs. Now all those letters lined up in a row is nice, but what’s really important is what we do with that alphabet soup of credentials. Our broad mix of talent and experience allows us to analyze a product or sponsor from financial, legal, operational, and tax perspectives, all while asking the right questions and sharing our thoughts that are drawn from decades of diverse experience. 

History of our Name:

Buttonwood Due Diligence takes its name from the Buttonwood tree under which the agreement founding the New York Stock Exchange was signed. Dana Lawrence Woodbury’s 4th great grandfather, Augustine Hicks Lawrence was the youngest founding member under that famous buttonwood tree.
