Legal Entity Management

Mitigate risk. Reduce costs. Enhance Visibility.

Effective legal entity management (LEM), compliance, and corporate governance are more essential than ever—but they add extra work and stress for corporate legal teams. Let Deloitte ease that burden by handling your LEM and corporate governance administration needs.

The importance of legal entity management

A significant rise in multijurisdictional scrutiny (and a call for increased transparency from regulators, stakeholders, and investors) has made effective LEM and corporate governance essential. The increased scrutiny, however, may result in burdensome obligations for corporate legal teams.

When addressed in-house, the process could be labor-intensive and may demand the attention of valuable members of your legal team, keeping them from value-add work and strategic priorities. Outsourcing various components could mean tracking a network of disparate providers.

What if one provider could handle your legal entity management and corporate governance administration needs?
