Commercial law is sometimes referred to as business law. It encompasses most transactions of the business world such as contracts, operations, accounting, bookkeeping, sales, trade secrets, entity formation and the buying and selling of businesses. Commercial law and business law encompass a few overlapping issues.
The attorneys at Dorsett Johnson & Swift have experience in defending and prosecuting commercial litigation matters. We also have experience in business formation and day-to-day management. We serve as outside “general counsel” for a number of small and mid-size corporations that do not have the need for a full-time “in-house” general counsel.
While the Uniform Commercial code (UCC) or the Texas Business and Commerce Code is the primary governing authority for commercial transactions, other specified legal areas have developed that are types of commercial or business law. They include Banking, Bankruptcy, Consumer Credit, Contracts, Debtor and Creditor, Landlord-Tenant, Mortgages, Negotiable Instruments, Real Estate Transactions, Sales and Secured Transactions.
