What is the difference between Corporate Law and Commercial Law?

We are often asked this question by prospective clients. They aren't always sure whether the legal advice they need relates to a corporate law matter or is of a nature that requires a commercial lawyer.

In general terms, corporate law refers to matters that relate to the structuring or restructuring of a company as well as acquisitions and mergers.

Commercial law covers a wider range of legal services that include litigation, contracts, intellectual property and insurance matters.

There is a great deal of overlap between the two areas of law, and most commercial solicitors have considerable experience in advising on corporate law matters and vice versa. That’s certainly the case with Spencers commercial and corporate solicitors.

Commercial Contracts

Commercial contracts and agreements are essential key elements underpinning all successful businesses. A well-drafted contract can mean that a business enters into a commercial relationship safe in the knowledge that it is doing so on a sound contractual basis.

A badly drawn up contract may only be exposed as such when one party to the contract seeks to rely on a condition that the other party has a contrary interpretation of. Commercial litigation, as an area of law only exists because of badly drafted agreements.

We are able to provide responsive and focused legal advice on the full range of commercial contracts, including:

  • Terms and conditions (both business to business and business to consumer)
  • Agency and distribution agreements
  • Supplier agreements
  • Franchise agreements
  • Partnership agreements
  • Joint ventures
  • Procurement arrangements
  • Outsourcing
  • IT contracts, including outsourcing and systems procurement, e-commerce law and mobile apps

Corporate Law Services

We regularly act for both buyers and sellers of businesses. Some of our clients have bought or sold business shares and assets before. For others, they are going through the process for the first time. We always bear this in mind and make sure that we tailor our advice and approach accordingly.
