Frequently asked questions
What is corporate & commercial law?
Also known as Business Law, it includes any and all laws that can affect business operations. This makes it a very broad field that is constantly evolving. Corporate & Commercial lawyers must be familiar with standard business practices as well as business law.
Why should I contact a corporate & commercial lawyer?
Booking an Advice Session with a business lawyer can save your business from conflicts later on. It's a good choice to ensure you receive the legal counsel you need before making big decisions or entering contracts as it can protect you and your business. For example, a lawyer can review your standard contract to ensure it is legally binding and that you have all the protection you need if there is a problem in the future.
What does this contract mean?
If you have questions about a contract you can have it reviewed by a lawyer. Contracts are often illegal, invalid, or unenforceable and shouldn't always be taken at face value.
Can I adjust my corporation after I've created it?
Corporations can be modified at any time through a number of different mechanisms. This includes transfers of ownership, the appointment of new directors, and mergers and acquisitions of other companies.

Every lawyer has been interviewed and background checked. They must be licensed and receive consistently positive reviews to remain on the platform.
