Mir ist nicht klar, wie diese beiden Begriffe zusammenpassen ("GL" steht hier wohl für "General Ledger") und wie ich das übersetzen sollte. Hat jemand eine Idee?

GL and (US: General) Counsel

Could be General Counsel in the US squares with a Company Secretary in the UK.

In that string, Rechtsbeistand or Justitiar/in is an unlikely sequel.

Example sentence(s):
  • General Ledger (GL); Accounts Payable (AP); Accounts Receivable (AR); Payroll ... Forward and Cycle Billing; Multiple receivables, sales and payment accounts.
  • If you become general counsel, you need to understand basic finance in order to properly manage the legal department’s P&L.
