We all play a pivotal in our company’s finances, whether we realise it or not. This is especially so for lawyers who plays an indispensable role in the financial world. But often, many know very little about finance.
Lawyers handle the practical dealings of their corporate clients all the time - IPOs, mergers, takeovers, joint ventures, buy-ins, buy-outs, regulatory filings and financial disclosure documents – all of which never occur without in-depth legal advice and close involvement of lawyers. When lawyers understand the context and terminology of the statements, they will be able to work more comfortably with them and squeeze more information they need to do their job better. When you're working on a transaction, it's your job to find the problems and the mistakes. When you're writing a disclosure document, you and your client are at risk if there is a material misstatement or omission. You need to understand the financial elements of the transaction to evaluate what's material and what isn't. Lawyers and corporate counsels need to understand the complex terminologies -- options, convertibles, swaps, derivatives, asset-backed securities, and many more – those are just some of the important terminologies being discussed within corporate practice today.
