Commercial law – Corporate law

Commercial law became one of the most extensive and wide-ranging branches of law through the process of economic and social development. It covers a wide range of corporate, company, and intellectual property law, as well as law governing transport, logistics, maritime, aviation law and various other commercial transactions. In addition there are securities law and a multitude of commercial customs and usages. Due to the broad nature, frequent changes and adaptations of law, even large companies are bound to have some difficulties navigating their way through the flood of regulations, not to mention small enterprises and entrepreneurs who have to deal with complex legal frameworks they operate in alongside all the challenges entrepreneurship poses itself.

Many companies and entrepreneurs cannot bear the expense of employing their own in-house lawyers. But even those who can, often seek external legal help or advice when they encounter a complex legal question. Virtually every undertaking will have to seek legal advice from a lawyer when a commercial dispute is brought before the court, mainly because lawyers possess specific knowledge and experience necessary for successful representation before the court.
