What Is Business Law?
Law is a
civil law that deals with business and commerce, both private and
public. It provides the legal framework within which businesses are
created, organized, and conducted. Business law covers a wide
variety of topics relating to the law of contracts, agency,
corporations, partnerships, limited partnerships, franchises, and
limited liability companies. It involves such issues as fiduciary
relationships, closely held corporations, shares and stockholders,
franchises, directors and officers, management duties and liabilities,
mergers and acquisitions, securities, and antitrust laws.
I Start My Business? What Kind of Business Setup Is Right For
interested in starting what is referred to as a “small
business.” A small business generally has fewer
employees. They are usually a closely held corporation, partnership, or
sole proprietorship acting under the small business law regulations. In
terms of ownership, only a few stockholders own or "hold" the shares of
a closely held corporation. Partnerships involve two or more persons
who agree to go into business together as co-owners. A Sole
proprietorship is a business operated by a single owner with no
separate legal entity for holding or operating the business, including
the owner's liability for the business's debts. Access more information
here in the small business law practice center.
