    The article aims to show how legal auditor has to adapt its mission to an economic and financial crisis context. The legal auditor has to operate specific diligences in this case, because certain risks are amplified, as those liking the continuity of exploitation and the bad estimation of the accounting result. Besides, the general report of legal auditor could be modified because of the uncertainty pressing on certain elements, what can lead asymmetries of information. The theoretical analysis of the situation is completed by a case study concerning a company situated in a sector touched by the current financial crisis, the manufacturing of high-technology- electrical equipments.
