In today’s dynamic global environment, businesses of all sizes can find themselves faced with a raft of emerging liability risks and the threat of claims from various stakeholders. Individuals with a broad understanding of corporate and general areas of law are in high demand.
Business law deals with the creation of new businesses and the issues that arise as existing businesses interact with their customers, members of the public, other companies, the government and other regulatory bodies. This fascinating area of the law draws on a variety of legal disciplines, including, intellectual property, real property, sales, employment law, bankruptcy and others.
