OUR AREA OF EXPERTISE
Commercial law is sometimes referred to as corporate law. It focuses on the laws that govern commerce, trade, sales and merchandising, as well as the businesses and individuals who participate in those activities.
Corporate, M&A and Securities
Deal & Tax Advisory
Alternative Dispute Resolution
Corporations Act 2001
Australian commercial law derives its authority from various sources. The Corporations Act 2001 sets out the laws which govern how companies are formed, and how they must operate, both internally and in their interactions with other businesses. This statute is administered by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).
Industry code of practice
Commercial lawyers also deal with industry codes of practice: Regulatory frameworks developed for use within specific industries. Some examples include the Australian Banking Association’s Code of Banking Practice and the Insurance Council of Australia Limited’s General Insurance Code of Practice.
Commercial lawyers often draw on legal sources relevant to specific issues facing their clients. For example, they may refer to taxation legislation, trade laws, and industrial relations laws.
