Abstract:The article is dedicated to the study of problems and deficiencies of legal regulation concerning organizational framework, status and activities of Russian law services in the sphere of economy. The author reminds that legal standing of several hundred thousand professionals in the mentioned sphere of law in contrast to their colleagues, specializing in other fields of law, is defined solely by the completely obsolete General Provision issued in 1972 which has actually become invalid to a great extent. The existing necessity of clarifying the concept of powers attributable to a commercial company’s legal department, i.e. in defining whether this unit’s authority rests in the company itself or its jurisdiction derives from the function of maintaining legality in the field of business activities, authorized by the state, is also subject to consideration. The latter solution would require official immunity from decisions taken by the administrator or the owner of a commercial company.
