The Difference Between Corporate Law and Commercial Law
As an established and successful law firm of nearly 20 years, Sketchley Solicitors offer expert advice on both Corporate Law and Commercial Law.
Also known as Business, Enterprise or Company Law, Corporate Law is the branch of law that pertains to companies, and their structuring. It governs the formation, managing and conduct of companies, and includes such matters as reorganisation and restructuring, shareholder rights, mergers and acquisitions. It also covers the rights and obligations of the individuals involved in setting up, financing and running the company.
Sketchley’s corporate solicitors can offer their expertise on large scale, complicated cross-jurisdictional transactions, right down to the everyday running of a company, whilst keeping abreast of the latest legislative and regulatory developments.
According to The Global City, 40% of all global corporate arbitrations use English corporate law as the main body of law. As companies become more globalised, Corporate Law has had to broaden its horizons to cover, for example, global capital markets, and our solicitors also have wide reaching international expertise. No two corporate transactions are the same and all should be handled on an individual basis, so teamwork, sharing a common objective, is an essential part of Sketchley Solicitors.
We offer a unique package for our Corporate clients by providing the services of an in-house solicitor, working within your company for an agreed amount of time per month, who is on hand to advise and answer your questions whenever necessary.
Commercial Law is the branch of law that regulates and governs commercial transactions and business deals. For example contracts, insurance, imports and exports, and banking all fall under Commercial Law.
The Sale of Goods Act 1979 is the primary statute, and the foundation for the rules governing trade. However, depending on the matter in question, other laws have to be considered. It is, therefore, crucial to be aware of all the latest developments and amendments pertaining to these laws and regulations.
We offer a full commercial package, including:
- Data Protection
- Commercial Conveyancing
- Dispute Resolution
- Supply and Distribution Agreements
- Terms and Conditions
As with Corporate Law, Commercial Law has to be handled on a case by case basis, and our expertise allows us to confidently manage your Commercial Law requirements.
Sometimes a case can fall under both Corporate and Commercial Law, and as a result, our solicitors are practiced in working together, delivering the best advice to lead you and your company to a favourable conclusion.
