Commercial Law

Commercial law is a branch of law that deals with the rights and obligations of businesses and individuals engaged in commerce, trade and industry. It covers a wide range of topics, such as contracts, consumer protection, intellectual property, competition law, corporate governance, insolvency and taxation.

In Australia, commercial law is governed by a combination of common law and legislation. Common law is the body of law developed by judges through court decisions over time. Legislation is the law enacted by parliament or other authorities. Some areas of commerce are regulated by federal laws, such as the Competition and Consumer Act 2010, while others are subject to state or territory legislation, such as the Corporations (Queensland) Act 1990.
