Corporate Law/Business Law
Corporations are unique in that they’re seen as completely separate entities in the eyes of the law. Although they can be made up of large groups of people (investors, owners, employees), corporations are treated as a single entity, meaning the laws deal with the business directly rather than the people within it. Essentially, the corporation is treated as a person.

- Mergers and acquisitions
What is the difference between business law and corporate law?
Business law covers issues like employment, contracts, and taxes. Corporate law, on the other hand, handles big picture concerns, such as buying decisions, mergers and acquisitions, and shareholders’ rights.
