Responsibilities of a lawyer in LLC
The main tasks of a lawyer in the company
In a company with any form of ownership, the main task of a full-time lawyer is to provide high-quality and prompt support for its activities in order to timely identify, prevent and minimize potential risks. Moreover, if the company is small and cannot afford to maintain a legal department in which each employee would specialize in his field of law, a full-time lawyer should be free to navigate in labor, tax and civil law.
That is why the duties that are assigned to a lawyer, will largely depend on whether he is the only lawyer working in this company. In this case, the head, who does not want to keep a lot of lawyers in the state, is advisable from time to time to involve specialists working in law firms and specializing in narrow areas of law.
What should be the responsibility of a lawyer
Without the participation of a lawyer, no documents should be developed, both constituent and internal regulatory and organizational-administrative. A lawyer should take part in the activities of the company from the very first days of its organization, participating in the process of registration of a legal entity. Subsequently, with his participation, changes are made to the constituent documents.
The duties of a lawyer include providing the company with regulatory legal documents regulating its activities, as well as maintaining and registering databases of regulatory legal acts, tracking and making all current changes in legislation. He must check for compliance with legal regulations all draft orders, instructions, regulations and other documents of a legal nature, which will then be signed by the head.
An important part of the job duties of a lawyer is contractual work. A lawyer must choose the optimal form of contractual relations, develop draft contracts and check those projects that are submitted to the head of the counterparties for signature by the law. The lawyer also participates in the resolution of claims and disagreements, as well as in court sessions, including arbitration. He will have to prepare applications for permits and licenses, special permits for the implementation of the company's activities. In addition, his competence will be to resolve issues under the labor law: hiring, transfer and dismissal of employees, labor disputes and so on. Employees of the enterprise will contact him to advise on various legal issues.
