The Legal and Corporate Services Division is central to the Commission's operations. It provides internal legal services to the Board of Commissioners and the Directorate. It also assists in the handling of competition and tariffs cases at full-scale investigation stage , and in preparing cases for public/stakeholder hearings. It therefore plays the crucial role of linking the Directorate's investigative functions with the Board of Commissioners' adjudicative functions. The Division's operational mandate also includes: (i) the provision of secretarial services to the Board of Commissioners; (ii) the enforcement of Commission's orders, determinations and other resolutions; and (iii) corporate governance and public relations.
The Division is headed by the Commission Secretary, who is at Assistant Director level. It is manned by lawyers and a public relations expert.
