Legal risk covers all areas of business where regulation and the law impact on operations and decisions. From risks arising from contract drafting and management, through to regulators' new focus on conduct, as well as compliance, regulatory and dispute risks, the effective management of legal risk is key for organizations that want to maximise value while minimizing cost and exposure to legal losses.

The Legal Risk Management Handbook is a practical guide to making sure your business is legal, protected and making the most of its opportunities. Written by experts in law and risk management, this highly practical guide sets out a clear definition for legal risk and a framework for its management.

Covering the full spectrum of legal risks that international businesses can face, it translates legal concepts into clear mitigatory actions. Whether you are an in-house lawyer needing a clear approach to managing risk in your areas of influence, or a member of the risk management function needing a jargon-free guide to your company's legal responsibilities, you will find authoritative insight and guidance.

Containing case studies from international businesses and real-life insights from those at the coal-face of legal risk management, The Legal Risk Management Handbook is essential reading for everyone who needs a better understanding of this important business topic.
