Examples of Corporation Legal Risk Detailed Management
1. Define the client’s targets of corporation legal risk management
We hypothesized that client’s legal risk beneficial cost is 4,000 Yuan (that means corporation should pay 4,000 Yuan when it earns 10,000 Yuan) and the average legal risk beneficial cost of other listed companies from same industry is 2,000 Yuan. Compared with the average legal risk beneficial cost, we could conclude that corporation legal risk management of our client obviously fall behind and need to strengthen. Based on our analysis above, we suggest our client to set up its target of legal risk management which reduced legal risk beneficial cost to 2,000 Yuan (the average level of other companies in same industry).
2. Legal risk position control
We hypothesized that there are 20 kinds of the related legal risk behaviors of A department B position after systematic identification and judgment. According to lawyer’s suggestion, there are 15 forbidding actions and 10 compulsory actions in the 20 kinds of related legal risk behaviors. In other words, employees of B position are required to fully understand the 25 actions and carry out in their daily works. This requirement is comparatively easy for we attached related cases and academic articles to each legal risk behavior to helping employees to understand it.
3. Performance Evaluation
We hypothesized that general manager of A Corporation need to made performance evaluation of its subsidiaries B and C. The annual profits of these two subsidiaries are the same, 10,000,000 Yuan. The size, financial situation, personnel, structure construction and other aspects are quite similar and hard to make distinction between them before. We will analysis all statistics and figure out that B’s legal risk cost index is 2,000 Yuan and C’s legal risk cost index is 6,000 Yuan. In this way, general manager could easily find out which subsidiary is better than the other. Obviously, B is the better one.
4. Project Evaluation
We hypothesized that one investor has investment funds about 10,000,000 Yuan and faces two investment projects (project A and project B) to choose. In both projects, 10,000,000 Yuan equals 10% shares. The estimate gross sales of these two projects are 100,000,000 Yuan. A project cost is 70,000,000 Yuan and B project cost is 75,000,000 Yuan. We could conducted that the return rates of project A is 30% and return rates of project B is 25%. Obviously, investor will invest project A base on normal judgment. However, these two projects’ legal risk cost indexes are quite different. After our project evaluation, we calculated that legal risk cost index of project A is 1500 and legal risk cost index of project B is 500. Based on our calculation, the return rates turned out to be 15% of project A and 20% of project B.
5. New Business Procedure Evaluation
Supposed our client want to launch a new product A. Its uniform price is 120 Yuan, direct cost is 60 Yuan and management cost is 10 Yuan. It means that each product’s pure profit is 50 Yuan. Based on analysis above, client think this product is a good choice to investment. However, legal risk cost index is 5000 after SUNHOLD lawyers’ procedure evaluation. That means product cost is 120 Yuan which almost the same as its uniform price. The only way our client need to do is raise uniform price (if market could accept its price) or suspend its launching.
