Why Commercial Law Matters
If you’re new to the world of business, you’re probably wondering: “What is commercial law, and why does it matter?” Commercial law definition is, of course, a broad subject, but the most relevant commercial law notes are as follows:

Commercial law is, first and foremost, necessary to ensure the security and efficacy of commercial contracts. When you sign a contract with a client, supplier, or partner, for instance, it is essential that the contract be legally binding in order to prevent either party from violating its tenets with impunity. Additionally, business owners often need the assistance a commercial solicitor to handle matters concerning commercial lease law and various regulatory laws (e.g. product safety laws and environmental laws). Finally, business owners who face litigation (legal action) require the services of commercial litigation lawyers to protect their interests.

The major areas of commercial law include:

  • Entity formation (such as shareholder and partnership agreements);

  • Agreements between customers, suppliers, and distributors;

  • Dispute resolution;

  • Financing arrangements;

  • Transportation arrangements;

  • Management arrangements.
