Commercial Law, or business law, is considered a branch of civil law, and deals with both public law and private law issues. This applies to the relations, rights, and conduct of businesses and individuals engaged in trade, sales, merchandising, and commerce. Commercial Law regulates hiring practices, corporate contracts, and manufacturing and sales of consumer goods. It encompasses titles such as: guarantee; merchant shipping; Fire, life, marine and accident insurance; carriage by land and sea; bills of partnership and exchange. Additional aspects of a business that are also governed by commercial law include: banking and bankruptcy; contracts; securities; collections; marketing and advertising.
While many countries have established civil codes explaining specific declarations of their own commercial law, the United States gives jurisdiction for commercial law to both Congress, through its power to regulate interstate commerce, and also to the states under their own police powers. The Uniform Commercial Code was adopted throughout the United States as a result of efforts to create one unified body of commercial, or business, law in our nation. Many governing schemes exist to regulate how business is conducted, especially in regard to employees and customers, including food and drug laws, safety laws (OSHA), and privacy laws.
Commercial litigation occurs when a party decides to take legal action (a lawsuit) regarding business transactions. You will want to seek out an experienced business or commercial litigation lawyer to represent you legally, and to help resolve the dispute. It is important that you make sure you have an attorney with experience dealing with your specific type of situation, since commercial litigation lawyers do not always specialize in every area of commercial or business law.
