Overview

Corporate and Commercial Law are quite interrelated and different at the same time. Corporate law includes legal issues concerning private companies with other companies or public limited companies etc. Corporate law is the creation and upkeep of partnerships and corporate structures, including the purchasing and offering of advantages of the organization. For these laws, there are corporate lawyers who deal with both the parties and fight a case in boardrooms for their clients.

In case of commercial law, there are contract issues of a property between the seller and buyer, or any dispute of a product between two parties. It can be also defined as the dispute between an organization and an outsider like terms and conditions, license agreement, reseller agreement etc.

One of them focuses on the rights and conduct of businesses and business owners while the other exclusively governs the rights and conduct of individuals and businesses affected by financial deals
