Our Firm has Certified Legal Auditor (CLA) who is entitled to conduct a legal audit. Legal audit is a crucial response to the legal and financial uncertainties faced by organizations in the 21st century . The term legal audit may sound unfamiliar in the businesses due to the fact that the common man, as well as the average organization, is well acquainted with the term financial audit, but somehow people are not that familiar with Legal Audit.
Generally, organizations and the businesses they carry on are governed by law. Failure to comply with the specific laws governing a particular organization can attract penalties and/or legal liabilities in the form of litigation.
Legal Audit will cover the following: the examination or analysis of the intricacies of the law; the interpretation of complicated sections of the law with hidden legal implications; the continuous development of the law in dynamic sectors; the systematic compliance with provisions of the law; and the numerous legal restrictions of the law which can be used as a tool to hold an organization legally responsible for an action or omission.
Such risks cannot be easily foreseen or prevented by conducting a financial audit on an organization. Legal audit, is quite different from financial audit but encompasses financial audit by ensuring that financial audits have been conducted in addition to ensuring that a company has observed the laws and policies which are applicable to that company. Failure to comply with the specific laws governing a particular organization can attract penalties and/or legal liabilities in the form of litigation.
