Corporate Solicitor Jobs
Corporate law, also known as business law or company law, is the area of law governing the rights, relations, and conduct of persons, companies, organisations and businesses. It refers to the legal practice of law relating to corporations. Corporate law describes the laws relating to everything from the formation through multi-facetted roles in funding, acquisition, governance, restructuring and finally the disposal or merger of a corporation.
Each of these stages require specialist skills including banking roles in finance and refinancing, share issue and stock market floatation, merger and acquisitions, management buy outs and management buy ins, company sales.
