Frequently Asked Questions
What is business law?
Business law includes any and all laws that can affect business operations. This makes it a very broad field that is constantly evolving. Business lawyers must be familiar with standard business practices as well as business law.
Why should I contact a business 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 business 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.
Do I need a business lawyer in my city and/or province?
Maybe. Regulations for employment law and corporate law vary from province to province, so a local lawyer is recommended for questions relating to these areas. Other legal needs, including commercial dealings, immigration, and intellectual property are regulated federally and you can work with a lawyer from anywhere in Canada. If you need a business lawyer in your province or city we will match you according to your needs.
How do I know if my business lawyer is qualified?
At Goodlawyer, we select, vet, train, review, and monitor each and every business lawyer on our platform to ensure they demonstrate the requisite training, legal skill, experience, and customer-oriented mindset to effectively and efficiently service our users' legal needs. We strongly encourage our users to rate their lawyers on their completion of a legal mandate to optimize transparency for future users. If a lawyer’s reviews fall below an acceptable level, they are removed from the platform.
What’s the difference between corporate law and business law?
Corporate law relates exclusively to corporations. As such, it can be thought of as a special sub-section of business law. Most of our business lawyers are well-equipped to handle small corporations, but it is a good idea to engage with one of our more specialized corporate lawyers if you have a more complex corporation.
