Legal Management Consulting
Legal Edge AB specialises in providing independent advice on management and governance decision-making based on common sense and legal requirements.
With the aim to strengthen fairness in business, we advise companies, organisations and individuals; combining in-depth knowledge in commercial and civil law with experience from international operations.
Ethical Values and Commercial Success
We provide legal and commercial advice with a human rights approach based on extensive knowledge and practical experience in business ethics.
A strong culture based on ethical values and the rule of law is an important foundation for commercial success in any business organisation. Thus, it is essential to be aware of and take into consideration the international principles of conducting business in an ethical way, such as the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
We provide support in the establishment of solid work processes and organisational structures based on the needs of individual firms’ management and legal affairs.
The overall responsibility of a legal affairs organisation is to support the management to secure and review the company’s position in relation to legal aspects and risks. A legal affairs organisation should work closely to the operation and management of the firm in order to support the compliance of internal rules and policies as well as external regulations imposed from legislators and authorities.
We assist in the analysis and customise the work process to improve management decision-making structure in the legal area.
The General Counsel is expected to provide legal decisions and holistic risk management through substantive knowledge and excellent technical skills. A profound business judgement is required to adhere with the company’s long-term strategy and goals. The General Counsel works closely with business managers and stakeholders without having a direct or formal reporting line. In doing so, the General Counsel should adapt a pragmatic way of working, taking in different opinions and forming a balanced approach. Unquestioned ethics and integrity is essential since the General Counsel is seen to carry an external fiduciary duty.
