Legal

Our legal department is involved in all corporate and regulatory compliance, contract negotiations and risk management. Other functions include; the management of outside counsel, protection of intellectual property and the development of Human Resource policies and procedures.

Compliance

The legal compliance officer ensures that the company is conducting its business in full compliance with all national and international laws and regulations that pertain to its particular industry, as well as professional standards, accepted business practices, and internal standards.

Protection of Intellectual Property

Protecting your intellectual property is crucial to the success of your business. Intellectual Property (IP) refers to creations of the intellect for which a exclusive ownership is assigned to designated owners by law. Intellectual property rights (IPRs) are the protections granted to the creators of IP, and include trademarks, copyright, patents, industrial design rights, and in some jurisdictions trade secrets.

Contract

A contract is a written or expressed agreement between two parties to provide a product or service. A contract arises when the parties agree that there is an agreement. Formation of a contract generally requires an offer, acceptance, consideration, and a mutual intent to be bound. Parties to a contract may be individuals, partnerships, corporations, or even governments. There may be more than two persons to a contract.

Managing Outside Counsel

Outside counsel play a significant role for the legal department. They provide additional resources, reach, expertise and capacity. Formal processes are necessary to efficiently manage outside counsel, to enforce outside counsel guidelines, and to manage budget compliance. To be effective, these processes should routinely check billing against budgets and also against the guidelines for staffing and time logs.

Our Partners

It is with great pride that we at General Services recognize the partners, whose support, effort and expertise have been and continue to be a crucial part of our success. We commend each of our partners for their commitment to excellence.
