Legal Risk Management

All business decisions imply a certain level of risk, whether it is financial or legal. In the legal domain, the risk may take multiple appearances. It can arise from a context of contracts, labour law, environment law, penal law, etc.

Risk management does not consist in eliminating all risk, but rather in evaluating, weighting and pondering the risk. Good governance of a business requires foreseeing the impact of the decisions made as well as evaluating the consequences and scope of the risks taken. Appraising legal risks allows for better planning before taking a decision and acting on it.

Its experience in litigation and business law allows the law firm of Lecours, Hébert Lawyers to advise and appraise legal risks. As lawyers, taking into account legal risk is an integral part of our professional practice. It must be considered at every step of the decision-making process, either while drafting a contract, negotiating an out-of-court settlement or giving legal advice to a client. On a daily basis, our law firm manages this notion of legal risk across the entire field of its expertise.
