Commercial law ( also known as Business law) is the body of law that governs business and commercial transactions. It is often considered to be a branch of civil law and deals with issues of both private law and public law.

Commercial litigation involves the resolution of disputes arising in the corporate and commercial sectors, such as asset and venture capital projects, banking transactions, civil fraud, corporate governance, EU/competition, financial services regulation, mergers and acquisitions, share capital reorganisations and professional negligence.
