Small Business Legal Audits

None of us like to consider we may be heading for trouble, and many of us have an “it won’t happen to me” attitude.

Whitelaw Mcdonald has developed a Legal Audit process that will enhance the small business operator’s ability to survive some common disaster possibilities.

We place particular emphasis on:


Preparation and Prevention are essentially about risk management.

What can you do to lessen the possibility or the impact of an adverse interruption or disaster occurring to your business?


Response is the immediate reaction to an incident or emergency. It addresses matters of personal safety, and the policies, procedures and actions to be followed in the event of business interruption.


Resumption refers to the process of planning for and/or implementing the resumption of time-sensitive business operations immediately following a disaster (ideally within a specified time).


Recovery is the process of planning for and/or implementing the restoration of all business operations and services to pre-disaster levels.


In undertaking a Legal Audit we assertain that the following procedures, processes, policies and documentation are in place (as necessary) covering:-

  • Risk Management
  • Insurance
  • Business Planning
  • Basic Company and Market Vision
  • Government Compliance
  • Company Books & Records
  • Shareholdings/Membership Matters
  • Laws
  • Recordkeeping
  • Directors liabilities
  • Intellectual Property Protection
  • Employment
  • Contracts
  • Cost Saving Measures
  • Succession and Exit Strategy Planning
  • Litigation
