Understanding Corporate Law and Business Law

Corporate law and business law are both large divisions of the law related to actions people take related to their business matters. Most people think these two legal divisions are interchangeable, but, while there is some overlap between them, there are also important differences.

Corporate Law

Corporate law includes all the laws, regulations, and rules that relate to the formation and operation or corporations, including all the rights and obligations of those who are a part of forming, owning, and managing a corporation. That being said, a corporation is simply a business that exists separately, as its own entity from the people who create it.

While corporations sound like giant companies with thousands of employees and a massive reach, that’s not always the case. A corporation or company can consist of a single individual. An experienced business attorney can counsel you regarding the type of entity that provides the most protection, such as a limited liability company, or LLC. An individual may form an LLC for legal protection to ensure that if the business fails or is sued, he or she can’t lose more than the investment.

Business Law

Business law is a more comprehensive division of the law. It includes all the matters related to:

  • Business formation
  • Acquisition and mergers
  • Shareholder and partner rights
  • Employment
  • Contracts
  • Taxes
