Legal matters relating to business can seem complex as it is - without having to work out the difference between commercial and corporate law or decide which areas of representation are correct for the changeable, unique and individual needs of your brand or company. After all, the numerous types of commercial law include everything from contract law to international trade and property law, to commercial property law, employment law, companies law, competition law, consumer protection, intellectual property, copyright, trademark and patent law and even environmental law. However, all this might just be easier to get to grips with than you think, and to prove it, the experts at Prosperity Law have decided to put together a brief guide to help you work through your options and decide how to move forward when it comes to your choice of legal assistance and advice. Read on for more information.

While searching for legal representation for your business, you will very likely have come across the terms “commercial law” and “corporate law”, but you might have found that the difference between the two is not often made very clear. So which specialist business-based branch of the law best meets your requirements, and why? The surprising answer is that the two are regularly relatively interchangeable, depending on the firm you choose. Naturally, both areas are fairly similar in terms of the clients and issues they cover. However, there is usually a small number of distinctions that may differentiate them to a degree. Corporate law often refers to a slightly narrower set of practices relating to the overall “life” of the business and its management and relationships - from beginning to end - including expansions, downsizing, acquisitions and mergers. Commercial law practices usually exist to manage the legal elements of smaller, more wide-reaching details of the day-to-day workings of a business, such as intellectual property, litigation and the running of individual franchises connected to a brand. For example, depending on the legal specialists you choose, you may find that your shareholder or partnership dispute case is being represented by either a corporate or commercial solicitor. In fact, experts from both areas often work together to resolve these particular kinds of issues.

Both commercial and corporate law should be considered vital elements of your business set-up. Indeed, searching for good legal representation ought to be one of the very first steps you undertake when setting up your own company, as, however well-organised and transparent you are as a professional and as a managing director, ensuring the smooth performance of the collection of individuals playing integral roles within its daily running is no easy task. Of course, writing up watertight contracts and obtaining comprehensive insurance goes a long way towards safeguarding yourself, your premises, your products, your staff and your customers against potential issues, but any number of scenarios may still arise that could render you in urgent need of legal advice or representation. There will always be interpersonal disputes, logistical errors and contract-centred quibbles, no matter how carefully you’ve laid the groundwork. Without a specialist in commercial law to assist you in these cases, the likelihood of your business being scammed, taken advantage of, sued or simply falling apart due to unresolved infighting is much times higher - so it just isn’t worth the risk. In times of smooth sailing, it may feel like the amount of work and money you’re putting into your company’s legal protection and representation is an unnecessary distraction from your daily tasks, but legal issues can regularly take you by surprise - and when this occurs, it will all seem exceptionally worthwhile.

If you’re looking for legal assistance, advice or representation for your business, you can start by searching in your area for recommended specialists with an excellent track record of working with companies within the same field as your own. After this, make a list of relevant current or potential legal matters that particularly affect your area of work. These will serve as prompts for when you first begin a dialogue with your selected firms. Next, make contact with the specialists you have shortlisted, and take note of your interaction.
