What are corporate law firms and what services they offer?

Date: 18 Feb 2016    Group: Lawyers    Category: Indian Law   

I have heard about corporate law firms but do not understand the type of services they are offering. Will they argue only for companies or they can also argue even for individuals? Can they argue in favor of civil and criminal cases also? How they are different from company lawyers?

As the name/designation suggests a corporate lawyer specializes in various aspects of corporate laws including contract law, tax law, accounting, securities law, bankruptcy, intellectual property rights, licensing etc. Corporate law is a part of broader company law. Generally such specialist lawyers don't take civil/criminal cases of general nature pertaining to the individuals.

Corporate lawyers are basically advisers and they do not fight for normal crime. Their work area may include companies legal issues, Taxes, etc.

They are lawyer by qualification.

Most of the corporate firms offer the services in different types. Some of the services are -

1. Legal documentation for HR
2. Legal documentation for compliance
3. Work as an outsourcer firm for compliance
4. Legally work on business issues
5. Represent company on legal sides

These are some of the things that can be of given by the service based legal firms. Those companies however require some specific commitment period. So it is more of contract work than day to day job for them.
