About the heading Business Law in Yellow Pages®
Business law, sometimes referred to as commercial law, is the body of law that governs business and commercial transactions. Business law encompasses the many rules, statutes, and codes and regulations that govern commercial relationships and provide a legal framework within which businesses may be conducted and managed. Business law is highly diverse and includes areas such as business formation and organisation, transactional business law or contract law, business planning, business negotiations, and mergers and acquisition etc.
Business law is complex and the duties of a business lawyer are also complex. The responsibilities of a business lawyer may include the preparation of documents for business transactions such as contracts, leases, employee manuals, sales agreements and tax issues etc. Business lawyers also conduct litigation on behalf of the business they represent and are sometimes required to represent clients in courts of law.
Business lawyers are required to hold a law degree and may have to undertake further post graduate study. The Law Council of Australia, LCA, and The Australian Corporate Lawyers Association, ACLA, are the peak national associations representing the legal profession working privately or for businesses and governments in Australia.
