Commercial law typically deals with areas of business including commerce and consumer transactions.
Commercial law provides guidelines for how businesses and consumers should conduct themselves during business transactions. This can include the sales of goods and services, negotiable instruments, contracts of carriage and more.
Some of the most common commercial law issues may deal with:
Business Entity Formation and Structuring – comparing and contrasting the benefits of LLC vs. LP vs. LLP vs. S Corp vs. C Corp
Commercial Transactions – negotiating, structuring and drafting commercial agreements including lease agreements, services agreements, buy-sell agreements and nondisclosure agreements
Corporate Transactions – assisting individuals and businesses in purchasing or selling a business, corporate reorganizations, joint venture agreements and stock purchases
Business and Commercial Litigation – representing individuals and businesses in legal matters related to civil, criminal and commerce litigation
Commercial law attorneys often help individuals and businesses negotiate and enter into business transactions. If a legal dispute arises, a commercial law attorney may stay involved prior to the filing of a lawsuit.
If a lawsuit should arise, this is generally characterized as commercial litigation. Individuals and businesses often enlist the help of a commercial litigation attorney after a lawsuit has been initiated.
Dealing with commercial law disputes and legal issues can be a difficult and confusing process. It may also risk significant amounts of time and money. For this reason, it is often wise to enlist the help of an experienced commercial law attorney.
