Overview of Business and Commercial Law
Business law and commercial law are two areas of legal practice that significantly overlap. Business law focuses on all aspects of a business, from forming a business to running it, while commercial law regulates the sales and distribution of goods and services, as well as the related financial transactions.
Common Types of Business Law
Business law covers a vast area of law and can include restrictions on deceptive business practices, environmental regulations, and contracts.
Here are some of the most common types of business law:
- Intellectual property: This area of law protects the rights of the owners and creators of intellectual property. It includes patents, copyrights, trade secrets, and trademarks.
- Tax law: Businesses may have to pay several kinds of taxes, including income taxes for the profits of the company, sales tax on services or products, property tax on any real estate owned by your business, and many others.
- Employment law: This area of law involves the employee-employer relationship, pay requirements, workplace safety, discrimination, termination, and hiring.
- Antitrust: Also known as competition laws, these types of laws promote competition but prevent monopolies and other unfair or deceptive practices by businesses.
