For some reason many people seem to confuse business and corporate law. They do different things. Business law is actually referred to as commercial law, and corporate law is usually called company law. While this might not end the confusion as to what each attorney does that practices these forms of law, it may clarify the fact that both forms of legal practice handle business and commercial transactions, and the internal rules of running a company.
Typically, a Sacramento business lawyer handles things like contracts, commercial paper, employment law, sales and agency, and deals with things like corporations and partnerships. On the other hand, corporate law pays close attention to the relationship between businesses and customers and, how things run under the auspices of the firms internal rules. Anything legal, litigated or mediated, etc. in either area of these two types of law applies to all transactions in public or private.
Lets take a closer look at what a Sacramento business lawyer handles. In this particular legal arena, business law lays out how different enterprises are set up. For instance: registration, proper documentation and other requirements, how taxes apply to them, drafting bylaws, articles of organization, company start-ups, buying or selling of other firms, handling employees in the correct legal manner, properly managing the venture and so on.
