A legal opinion, also referred to as an opinion letter is a valuable document issued by a lawyer expressing a legal analysis of a specific problem, concern, or transaction.
Such letter is normally divided into various sections, starting by identifying the background, assumptions to be relied on, qualifications, and lastly the legal opinion drawn up by the lawyer. Such letter will also identify legal risks and can, for example, confirm that a party can participate in the transaction and be able to perform the obligations as outlined in the documents.
The purpose of providing the legal opinion is to inform the addressee of the legal effect of a transaction or matter; and to identify legal risks that the addressee should consider and further evaluate. For this, the purpose of such legal letter is that the recipient will be able to rely on the content of opinion letter and treat it as a basis for entering into a specific transaction. In brief, a legal opinion expresses the illegibility or legibility of an action to ensure that regulatory requirements are satisfied based on legal principles. For instance, when a certain business transaction is involved, a legal opinion would reassure an investor, or otherwise, that all documents are binding.
