One of the easy-to-fix yet key issues I have seen in legal writing, both by native English speakers and Turkish lawyers, is referring to a company as “they.” It is something we commonly do as we speak English even though it is incorrect. Referring to a company as “they” should definitely not be done in legal writing. In fact, it should not be done in Business English of General English practice.
When speaking or writing about a company, consider these:
They – It
Their – Its
Theirself – Itself
Megan E. Boyd hosts a fabulous blog on legal writing, Lady (Legal) Writer, and discusses this issue in more detail. Check out her post, A Company is an “It.”
