About the Job
Provide Legal Advice
- Using oral or written platforms, Legal Officers will be expected to brief team of staff members on legal issues, potential liabilities and possible courses of actions.
- This involves translating complicated legal jargon into language which everyone can understand, as well as taking all possible legal problems into consideration before making any recommendations.
- All recommendations which the Legal Officer makes must be in complete compliance with the law, and must also strive to minimize risk for their organization.
- Any sort of legal work involves a great deal of paperwork, and the job of a Legal Officer is no exception.
- Legal Officers will frequently need to write and review settlement documents, contracts, agreements, stock certificates and more.
- This task makes up of a significant portion of the day-to-day work of Legal Officers, and requires both focus and precision.
- Since laws and regulations are always changing and being modified, it’s up to the Legal Officer to continuously research legal resources such as articles, codes, statutes, judicial decisions and more.
- Doing so will allow the Legal Officer to stay up to date on all current laws and make well-educated legal recommendations.
- Ideally, legal issues should be nipped in the bud before they even begin.
- This is why it’s essential for Legal Officers to regularly analyze the actions and decisions of their companies in order to identify problem areas, suggest alternative courses of action and mitigate risk as much as possible.
- When a legal matter is underway, it’s up to the Legal Officer to direct all claim adjusters, liability attorneys and other members of the legal staff.
- With proper leadership, the legal staff can proceed with clarity, efficiency and confidence and hopefully resolve the matter swiftly.
