If you love the TV show Suits, then you’re familiar with a highly dramatized version of corporate law.
Corporate lawyers are responsible for ensuring the legality of business transactions, and so their knowledge base must be fairly broad. For example, they might advise a client on how to legally structure a business or guide a client through a business acquisition or merger.
As such, a corporate lawyer’s knowledge might include a wide range of topics beyond corporate law itself, such as:
- Tax law
- Contract law
- Zoning laws
- Accounting laws
- Bankruptcy laws
- Securities law
- Intellectual property rights
Unlike a personal injury or criminal defense attorney, a corporate lawyer must be a team player by nature, as corporate attorneys on both sides of a transaction aren’t adversarial; instead, they’re trying to seek common ground for both of their clients in order to find the best possible outcome.
Family attorneys are another group that many regular people are familiar with — they’re often referred to as divorce lawyers.
But family law goes much deeper than divorce. It deals with all family-related issues and domestic relations. Many family law firms handle litigation around marriage and divorce, but family lawyers also handle:
- Juvenile delinquency
- Domestic violence
- Civil protection orders
Some family lawyers develop a specialty, but many of these lawyers work with different types of family law cases. They must also have a wide range of legal skills, from drafting contracts to counseling clients on their rights and options to litigating contested matters.
