Business Law

Business Law

Business law (sometimes known as commercial law) governs business and commercial transactions, business organizations (corporations, LLC’s, and partnerships), contracts, civil litigation, document preparation and review, employee/employer relations, wrongful discharge, and many other areas.

It can also be understood to regulate corporate contracts, hiring practices, and the manufacture and sales of consumer goods. Many countries have adopted civil codes that contain comprehensive statements of their commercial law. In the United States, commercial law is the province of both the United States Congress, under its power to regulate interstate commerce, and the states, under their police power. Efforts have been made to create a unified body of business law in the United States. The most successful of these attempts has resulted in the general adoption of the Uniform Commercial Code, which has been adopted in all 50 states (there can be slight variances to the code in each state).
