The Legal System
Riordan Manufacturing has several tiers of legal representation. Lowell Bradford is the chief legal counsel for the company and is responsible for overseeing the entire legal aspect of the business. Lowell Bradford contracted Litteral & Finkel who provides legal services, direction and suggests policy regarding legal issuers. Litteral & Finkel are an international organization who provides legal advice for all of Riordan’s division excluding the Chinese division.

The organization currently has a working legal system that it inherited. Dr. Riordan’s cousin was a partner at the Litteral & Finkel firm but has since passed away. This may lead to an opportunity for change within the organization. The company should explore the possibility of hiring an internal Legal team who specialize in reducing the cost impact of litigation. Human Resources
