  • Commercial law is the body of law the governs business and commercial transactions and is considered to be a branch of civil law. It deals with business issues affecting both the private and public sector. This type of law has a wide range of practice areas within its umbrella. There are certain, serious breaches concerning business that are criminal-these are known as white collar crimes-and would be tried in a criminal court rather than a civil court. Laws, such as those against insider trading, that affect the core of the economy on a huge level, would not be tried under regular business law. Corporate contracts-contract law is one of the biggest, if not the biggest, facet of business law. Lawyers in this field will draw up contracts, supervise their signing and then file lawsuits on behalf of a client if a contract is breached.
