Commercial Law in Edmonton 

What is commercial law?

While corporate law regularly deals with elements of the business, including starting a business or settling employer/employee disputes, commercial law relates to corporates, enterprises and even small businesses making money from their product or service. When dealing with these issues, businesses will need to employ a commercial lawyer. 

What is a commercial lawyer? 

Commercial lawyers are responsible for protecting your company's business interests. Many commercial lawyers specialize in a particular area, such as Intellectual Property or Technology. Others are tasked with identifying prime real estate locations for your company to set up shop.

They share many similarities with corporate lawyers, but while there is an overlap in their skillset, there are a few differences, also. 

Duties of a Commercial Lawyer 

A commercial lawyer will require exceptional research skills, and this is enhanced with a level of curiosity that enables them to continue digging deeper. To the outsider, this may not seem so important, but it could prove vital for commercial lawyers hoping to identify details hidden deep within a contract. 

This attention to detail will also benefit them in outlining and writing crucial business contracts. The slightest mistake could prove disastrous for the client, so they must ensure their attention to detail is exceptional along with communication skills that get to the point and are not open for interpretation. 

The relationship between a commercial lawyer and their clients is also paramount. As the business landscape is continuously evolving, they will need to stay up to date with the industry and with their client's activities. The last thing a lawyer wants is for them to believe and use outdated information, as this reflects poorly on their abilities and the company they represent. By remaining up to date with everything within the industry, they understand contextual reasons for any changes, which will help them understand the best approach for solving problems. 

Even if you run a small business or a startup, there is the chance that your commercial lawyer may need to work with other companies at some point. Therefore, it's imperative that a commercial lawyer possesses the ability to work well as part of a team. This will vastly reduce the risk of misunderstandings and conflict, and allows them to reach the most appropriate solution for your situation. 

A Contract Lawyer Will Save You Time and Money

If you are a new enterprise to Edmonton, you may have considered skipping lawyers fees and adopting a DIY contract drafting process on your own. While this may work in the short-term, you won't have a professional who is familiar with the specifics of your case should legal problems arise. It's always better to seek a qualified professional to help you avoid problems right from the start than to bring someone new in when the floodgates are already open. We'll draft, review and bind documentation, facilitate contracts, and assist in mitigating and resolving any disputes.
