Principles of Commercial Law

Corporate law handles the way corporations form and operate, relating to contract and commercial law. Corporate law can cover anyone forming, owning, operating, or managing the corporation and is meant to assist businesses in both their larger ventures and day-to-day operations. Since corporations are considered taxable entities, shareholders and owners are protected from personal liability for debts and liabilities that a corporation can incur. 

Legal personality is where owners of said corporations put resources in a different entity, which can utilize assets so they may sell if that is the decision they decide to reach. Creditors may not be able to take back assets but can form a separate entity that operates separately if that is the case.

Limited liability refers to a corporation being sued – however, only the assets are at risk. Plaintiffs cannot seek individual assets from owners. This helps owners of many businesses take calculated risks to expand and strengthen investments and other ventures. 

Delegated management is the structure in which a corporation handles its practices. Officers and board of directors must take equal part incorporation responsibilities, such as decision-making protocols, including hiring or other large scale decisions. 

Commercial or corporate law may help business owners when it comes to those crucial decision-making moments, especially when other parties are involved in the process. If your business needs guidance, contact an M&A Attorney in Miami for help.
