COMMERCIAL LAW FAQ’S

What is commercial law?

Commercial law can also be referred to as corporate law or mercantile law. Mercantile law talks to the idea of merchants and traders because commercial law talks specifically to those who are dealing in a business of exchanges and transactions, whether that’s for products or services. Any time there’s a sale or purchase of goods or services, commercial law would be considered an important feature along with contract law. If you are hoping for a career in commercial law and law of contracts, you’d be dealing specifically with legislation that refers to any business transaction between any organisation and their clients.

What does a commercial lawyer do?

Commercial lawyers provide advice relating to commercial matters and deal with issues pertaining to business transactions. They may review paperwork relating to companies, partnerships or trusts, particularly contracts, and draft business documents. They also prepare due diligence reports.

The documents they prepare may be related to establishing or dissolving a business, merging two businesses, creating sales contracts, establishing non-compete clauses or changing a business’s organizational structure. When necessary, commercial lawyers collaborate with their clients, other lawyers, accountants, or government agencies to prepare various types of documentation and paperwork, or complete transactions. They often engage in negotiations on behalf of their clients.

What are the major business structures and how do I choose what is best for my business?

The most common types of business structures are:

  • Sole trader
  • Company
  • Partnership
  • Trust

If you are thinking of starting a business, you will need to look at the advantages and disadvantages of each different business structure and work out which structure best suits your needs. Before deciding which business structure to use, it is important you seek advice from a professional business adviser, a lawyer or an accountant.

I am selling my business. Do I need a lawyer?

Selling a business can be a challenging task as the process can be time consuming and complicated. There are a number of factors to consider when selling your business, such as value your business, find buyers for your business, negotiate the sale and prepare the contract etc.

Business lawyers are professionals who specialise in buying and selling businesses. They can help you understand legal and government requirements and make the process of selling your business less stressful.
