Your personal skills

Problem solving and Judgement

  • The more complex legal issues in Corporate Affairs arise on an irregular basis.  It is the new corporate endeavor or dilemma that typically presents legal issues, each such issue having to be dissected and analyzed in its own light.
  • Complex issues also arise in the context of establishing company policies where there are a myriad of issues and competing interests that must be met.
  • Advising management on legal and business issues in complex transactions such as a corporate sale or acquisition and then coordinating due diligence, negotiating and drafting and reviewing extensive documentation, deciding when an issue may be significant enough to alert management and making recommendations on how to proceed to closure.

Decision-making requirements

  • While legal does not "make decisions" on business matters, the company recognizes that its advice, counsel and input may significantly influence business decisions that are made and in that context, while not responsible per se for significant business decisions, are responsible for the significant influence they have.  This is most readily understood in contract matters but can apply to more general business dealings. 
  • This position is responsible for providing advice and counsel on regulatory and legal compliance and will be vested with the authority through this position or within the management structure of the legal function to ensure that the company always conducts itself in a compliant fashion.
