Commercial law is a broad term that refers to a range of services relating to the running of a business – from intellectual property rights to negotiating cross-border sales or contracts. It can also cover individual legal matters such as employment contracts and consumer protection. Essentially, commercial solicitors help clients successfully navigate any legal issue that involves commercial operations and transactions.
Corporate law is more closely connected to businesses as legal bodies, helping them navigate a range of issues to do with the structuring of a business. It deals with a company’s needs, including company formation, operation, acquisitions, liquidation, and much more. Also known as business or company law, corporate law can have a direct impact on the sector and wider economy within which the business operates.

Commercial law is considered a more general range of legal services relating to business transactions, whereas corporate law is more specifically about the lifecycle of the business from formation to mergers and acquisitions to insolvency.
