What is Business Law?
Business law is a section of code that governs the formation, operation, and dissolution of private and public business entities. While businesses can be subject to a wide range of laws, including those involving civil and criminal liability, most Arizona business operations are governed by:
- Title 10 : Corporations and Associations
- Title 29 : Partnership
- Title 44 : Trade and Commerce
- Title 47 : Uniform Commercial Code

If you are planning or operating a food service or hospitality business, we are especially adept at handling the unique issues involved such as those involving Arizona liquor license law.
Arizona Purchase or Sale Agreements
When purchasing or selling a business in Arizona, it is particularly important to have legal protection. A Scottsdale business attorney can help you early on in the process from undertaking due diligence and structuring the deal to drafting confidentiality agreements and reviewing business contracts. It is always in your best interests to speak to an experienced business attorney as soon as possible in these situations.
Business Disputes and Commercial Litigation
In some cases, taking business disputes to court is necessary to protect the best interests of your business. With proper representation, you and your business can gain a decided advantage in business mediation, arbitration, or litigation. Over the course of his 30-year legal career, attorney William D. Black has worked with clients in resolving a variety of business disputes through litigation and arbitration and provides innovative, resourceful, and cost-effective representation in every case he handles.
Confidentiality and Non-Compete Agreements in Arizona
Non-compete agreements and confidentiality agreements are both contracts that are designed to protect business interests. Non-compete agreements generally prevent employees from engaging in business activities that directly compete with those of their employers for a predetermined amount of time after the employees leave their jobs. Confidentiality agreements, often called non-disclosure agreements, exist to keep the business relationship and potentially sensitive materials confidential.
Depending upon the situation and the language in the contract, these agreements may or may not be enforceable in Arizona. As a result, it may be in your best interests to speak with a business attorney to understand how these agreements work and how to structure them.
