Why Commercial Law Matters
Corporate law generally refers to legal matters relating to the “corporate entity” itself, such as incorporation, types of shares, shareholder agreements, acquisitions and company formation among other things.
Commercial law usually relates to interactions between the company and another third party, such as licensing agreements, terms and conditions, reseller agreements etc.
Both commercial law and company law are crucial for the security and efficacy of commercial contracts. For example, when you sign a contract with a client, supplier, or partner, it is essential that the contract be legally binding in order to prevent either party from violating its tenets with impunity. A commercial law expert is also ideally suited to helping you with commercial leases, regulatory laws (such as safety) and can also protect you from litigation among a wide range of other things.
