Tue 18 June 2024 What is a Legal Audit and does my business need one?

Safeguarding your business is crucial, and one effective way to do this is through a legal audit. Legal audits are designed to identify areas of concern within a business's legal framework, ensuring compliance with relevant laws, regulations, and internal policies

As part of Taylor Rose MW's commitment to supporting business success, John King, Partner & Commercial Solicitor, is offering free legal audit services. These services aim to help business owners identify potential issues that could pose future risks. The initial audit is completely free of charge, with no obligation to continue using our services.

John King, based in our Warrington office, has built a solid reputation throughout the northwest. With over 35 years of experience in commercial law, John is well-equipped to guide your business through any legal challenges you may encounter.

Why Consider a Legal Audit:

There are several reasons why a company may conduct a legal audit:

  1. Risk Management: Identify potential legal risks and liabilities that your company may be exposed to.

  2. Compliance Assurance: Companies are subject to a wide range of laws and regulations. The audit ensures’ adherence to a broad range of laws and regulations, from employment to data privacy. This will help avoid any non-regulatory penalties.

  3. Contract Review: Many companies have entered into numerous agreements and contracts. The audit will evaluate these with employees, suppliers, customers, and other parties to ensure they are legally sound and protect your company's interests.

  4. Intellectual Property Protection: Safeguard your patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets.

  5. Preparation for Sale: Streamline the process of selling your business by anticipating and addressing potential legal issues, ensuring transparency for prospective buyers.

  6. HR/Employment Review: Ensure that your employment practices and policies comply with current laws and regulations.

  7. Future Planning: Establish a baseline for your legal position to support a successful and compliant organisation.
