What is a Corporate Lawyer and What Do They Do?

What is a Corporate Lawyer and What Do They Do?

Corporate lawyers are really business lawyers that provide a broad range of legal services for startups and entrepreneurs.

Sometimes you hear the term, “corporate lawyer”. What that really means is, “business lawyer”. They can provide startup counseling, angel and venture capital financing, mergers and acquisitions, sell companies, form companies, review contracts, draft contracts and much more.

This is as opposed to a litigator. Litigators go to court. You’re used to seeing them on TV. A corporate lawyer can go their entire career without going to court. Some corporate law attorneys do litigation but for the most part there’s a distinction between a Corporate/business lawyer vs a litigator.

    It's a great travesty that corporations should be allowed to have their own lawyers paid from the very coffers of those committing the greatest crimes… Where is justice today, and who can afford it?   Lawyers know where ot go to make the most money, which is why they're not serving the interest of the People, whom can't even afford the cost of Justice!  Lawyers should be a part of the Justice system, their salaries paid not by the criminals looking for a get out of jail free card, but by the Government to ensure that laws are not used to support wickedness, but to put it behind bars where it belongs!
