Corporate, or company law is an area of practice dealing with situations of how shareholders, directors, employees, creditors, and other stakeholders such as consumers, the community and the environment interact with one another. Fabrizio, Hanson, Peyla and kawinski Law provides exceptional representation for companies or corporations dealing with issues pertaining to the varying governances and corporate finance.
Four key characteristics of most corporations where legal representation may be required include:
• Separate legal personality of the corporation (access to tort and contract law in a manner similar to a person)
• Limited liability of the shareholders (a shareholder’s personal liability is limited to the value of their shares in the corporation)
• Shares (if the corporation is a public company, the shares are traded on a stock exchange)
• Delegated management; the board of directors delegates day-to-day management of the company to executives
