What Does a Business Lawyer Do?

Although the word lawyer conjures up a myriad of stereotypes that have persisted over the decades, the truth is that there are many types of lawyers who practice in different areas with varying skill sets. While some specialize in prosecuting or defending criminals, others advocate for environmental issues or civil rights. In addition, many lawyers go through their entire careers without ever entering a courtroom.

A business lawyer, on the other hand, takes care of the legal issues involved in operating a business. Whether it’s a startup or an established company, a business lawyer can be very helpful for almost every aspect of running a business.

Commercial Collection Laws and How They Can Affect Your Business

Businesses often take on debt for many reasons whether they are expanding, upgrading their equipment, or overhauling their existing infrastructure.  Sometimes, however, these debt obligations become too great for them to handle. As a result, they often find themselves at the mercy of commercial debt collection agencies.

Often, however, business owners make the mistake of thinking that they enjoy the same debt protections as consumers. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA), however, was enacted to help consumers and, therefore, does not apply to businesses. Nevertheless, business owners on both sides of this equation are protected by commercial debt collection laws. The key is for businesses to know which laws apply to their situation.
