Lawfully represented by member and friend (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

legally

Here is my best explanation:

'lawfully' is the definition.

('legally' can be a synonym of 'lawfully')

'member and friend' is the subsidiary indication.

'member' becomes 'leg' (leg is a kind of member**).

'and' says to put letters next to each other.

'friend' becomes 'ally' ('ally' can be a synonym of 'friend').

'leg'+'ally'='legally'

'represented by' is the link.

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for legally that I've seen before include "In a manner approved by law", "As regards the law", "Licitly" and "Lawfully".)
