Boca Raton Corporate Law Attorney

Corporate law is a wide area of law that encompasses all legal issues that can arise between a business’ employees, consumers, directors, shareholders, and creditors. Sometimes, companies can also face legal issues with the government with regard to compliance with laws like the Sarbanes Oxley Act of 2002 and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

Like individuals, corporations have certain rights and responsibilities. A corporation is a legal entity and as such, it exists separately from its directors, shareholders, and employees. A corporation’s assets are its own, rather than the property of the individuals involved with the corporation, which provides a lawyer of protection for those individuals in the event the corporation is involved in a lawsuit. However, the court may opt to hold individuals involved with a corporation liable for damages caused by its illegal actions. This is known as piercing the corporate veil.

Examples of Corporate Law Disputes and Legal Issues

Corporate law encompasses all of the following case types:

  • Mergers;
  • Acquisitions;
  • Formation of new corporations;
  • The issuing and sale of corporate securities;
  • Corporate tax issues;
  • Employment disputes;
  • Shareholder disputes;
  • Violations of securities, tax, or environmental law;
  • Derivative suits;
  • Alleged violations of employee rights; and
  • Bankruptcy.

Corporate law is not limited to these case types. Generally, any legal issue involving a corporation falls into the category of corporate law.

Resolving Corporate Legal Disputes with a Boca Raton Corporate Law Attorney

Often, it is in the best interest of all parties involved in a dispute to settle it out of court. This saves money, time, and allows the results of the settlement to be kept private, which can pay dividends to the corporation by keeping its legal difficulties out of the public eye.

Because of this, many corporations opt to resolve their legal issues through alternative dispute resolution. Many corporate contracts actually require that any legal disputes that arise be resolved, or at least attempt to be resolved, through a form of alternative dispute resolution like arbitration or mediation. When this is not the case, or if attempt to resolve a dispute through alternative dispute resolution fail, the dispute may be litigated.

Be proactive and seek legal counsel from an experienced corporate attorney as soon as you can to determine your options for resolving your case. Corporate lawsuits are typically civil lawsuits, rather than criminal lawsuits.
