What is Business and Corporate Law?

Business and corporate law focuses on legal issues relating to the activities of businesses, from large corporations to small and medium-sized enterprises. This includes the formation, franchising and management of small and medium-sized enterprises, as well as high-level corporations law, mergers and acquisitions and public listings.

The LIV’s Commercial Law Section has a Business and Corporate Law Committee which discusses recent cases, legislative changes and practical issues relevant to business and corporate lawyers.

The Committee is responsible for developing relevant publications, forms and precedents, and submissions to government. The Committee also regularly liaises with relevant government bodies and industry groups, including the Business Council of Australia, CPA, Australian Bankers Association and Victorian Small Business Commissioner.
