Legal Audit and Legal Risk Management
A majority of business processes interact with the law at one point or another. Legal audit entails an examination of this interaction with the object of certifying that this interaction meets the requirements of law and that it does not expose the institution to loss arising from legal risk.
Through this service, our firm seeks to assist business organizations to identify loopholes within their systems and processes that may expose them to legal risks and where such risks are identified, advise on mitigation measures.
Owing to our frequent interaction with finance and lending institutions, we are frequently called upon to review securities and documentation, which facilitate the grant of credit to individuals and business organizations.
This include letters of offer, loan and facility agreement, guarantees and indemnities, debentures, charges, chattels mortgages, letters of credit, deeds of surrender, hire purchase agreements, and restructuring agreements.
