What Is Included in Business Law Practices?

Business law involves and encompasses all types of commercial transactions that involve legalities. In addition, any litigation process or courtroom trial in which one or more parties are business falls under the realm of business law. In short, business law is the legal structure in which businesses function.

What Is Civil Litigation?

Civil litigation involves matters of contract and exchange between individuals and businesses. As opposed to criminal court processes, issues falling under contract law or tort law are addressed through lawsuits in civil courts.

What Types of Business Entities Are There?

There are a wide variety of business entity formats to choose from, including limited liability companies (LLCs), limited liability partnerships (LLPs), corporations, joint ventures, sole proprietorships, and partnerships.
