Commercial law

commercial law handel and carlini

Commercial law, also known as mercantile law or trade law, is the body of law that applies to the rights, relations, and conduct of persons and business engaged in commerce, merchandising, trade, and sales. It is often considered to be a branch of civil law and deals with issues of both private law and public 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 commercial 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. When it comes to Commercial Law, any disputes can cause delays, eat up profits and damage the business relationships you depend on to turn a profit and grow your enterprise. Your commercial litigation attorney must be adept at resolving issues firmly without unnecessarily escalating them. He or she should be skilled across a variety of dispute resolutions methods, including traditional negotiation, arbitration, mediation and litigation in civil court. Commercial law is made up of numerous categories of law, including:

  • Banking

  • Consumer credit

  • Contracts

  • Corporate Law

  • Debtor and creditor

  • Intellectual Property

  • Landlord-tenant

  • Mortgages

  • Negotiable instruments

  • Real estate transactions
