Corporate Commercial Law
Practice Area Definition
The scope of Corporate Commercial Law is difficult to define since it (a) means different things to different people and (b) necessarily incorporates practice areas which, in some firms, are distinct areas of specialization, i.e., corporate finance, insolvency, etc.
Please note the Directory has separate sections for CORPORATE FINANCE & SECURITIES, CORPORATE TAX, BANKING & FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS, INSOLVENCY & FINANCIAL RESTRUCTURING and ASSET EQUIPMENT FINANCE/LEASING.
Although these practice areas are clearly related (and often integral) to corporate/commercial practice, they have developed distinct identities and are dealt with, therefore, in separate sections. Undoubtedly leading firms and practitioners in one related practice area, e.g., Corporate Finance & Securities, will often be leading firms and practitioners in Corporate Commercial Law as well.
