What is Business (Corporate Commercial) Law?

Business law provides the framework in which corporate and commercial business is conducted. It is comprised of laws involving companies and securities, banking and finance, contracts, financial services regulation, interaction with employees, and bankruptcy.

Business environments change constantly, and corporate and commercial law often comes into play when dealing with issues affecting day-to-day business activities and transactions. Although every company is different, there are numerous legal issues that business and other corporate entities commonly face.

The overall scope of corporate and commercial law is broad, as it involves practice areas that are often considered as separate areas of specialization. It may involve interaction with accountants, tax professionals, and succession or estate planning professionals.
