Commercial and Business Law

Commercial law governs business and commercial transactions. Often considered a branch of civil law, commercial lawsuits can deal with both private and public law.

Commercial law regulates corporate contracts, hiring practices, and the manufacture and sales of consumer goods. This area of law also addresses commercial transactions between individuals and business entities.
