This branch of law relates to the liabilities, duties, and legal rights of individuals or businesses involved in transactions that relate to merchandising, sales, commerce, and trade. Business law includes private and public laws as part of civil laws. This branch of law also encompasses laws concerning employment and agency, contracts, property, sales, business organizations, commercial paper, and bailments. You might encounter business laws when dealing with creditor and consumer protection, insurance, or will and estate planning. Other examples include managing, starting, buying, or selling a business, managing contractors, and working with employees.
Legal business entities come in all shapes and forms. A sole proprietor singlehandedly bears the responsibilities and risks of operating a business, but they can also take all of the business profits. This type of business owner wouldn't be held to the same laws that apply to a multi-national corporation or LLC.
When a business is formed as a partnership, the members form an association, allowing them to participate equally in profit-sharing and management. Partners in this type of business formation are also liable for all business debts and legal action in relation to any contracts or other agreements. The owners of a business might choose to appoint an agent, who is an individual who brings their expertise to contractual relationships between businesses and any third parties with which the company interacts.
We are committed to ensuring that every client receives personalized attention, including regular updates regarding case progress and options. While achieving a swift resolution is our goal whenever possible, our attorneys do not hesitate to take cases to court when a better outcome can be achieved in that way.
