What does a corporate lawyer actually do?

Whenever I have the chance to introduce myself and our firm, it is not uncommon for the other party to follow up with the following question "Oh nice. So what do you actually do?"

A corporate lawyer, also known as a business lawyer or corporate attorney, specializes in providing legal advice and representation to corporations and businesses. Our role involves handling a wide range of legal matters related to corporate operations, transactions, and compliance. At Rajvin Gill & Co, here are some of our common tasks and responsibilities as corporate lawyers:

Corporate Governance

We assist with the formation and structuring of corporations, including drafting and reviewing articles of incorporation, bylaws, and other corporate governance documents. We also advise on director and officer responsibilities, compliance with corporate regulations, and shareholder rights.

Contracts and Agreements

As part of our day to day work, we draft, review, and negotiate various contracts and agreements on behalf of our corporate clients. This may include contracts with suppliers, clients, employees, and other parties. We ensure that contracts protect our clients' interests, minimize legal risks, and comply with applicable laws.

Mergers and Acquisitions

As corporate lawyers, we play a crucial role in mergers, acquisitions, and other corporate transactions. We typically assist with due diligence, drafting and negotiating transactional documents, obtaining regulatory approvals, and ensuring compliance with legal requirements. We also advise on corporate restructuring and post-merger integration.

Compliance and Regulatory Matters

Also part of our daily scope of works, we help companies understand and comply with applicable laws and regulations. We monitor changes in legislation, assess their impact on the business, and provide guidance on compliance. Often times we may also be engaged to develop internal policies and procedures, conduct compliance training, and assist with regulatory filings.

Dispute Resolution:

It is common for corporations to be involved in various types of legal disputes, including contract disputes, shareholder disputes and commercial litigation. By representing corporations, we may negotiate settlements, engage in alternative dispute resolution methods, or represent clients in court proceedings.

General Legal Advice

Above all, we serve as trusted advisors to our clients, providing general legal advice and guidance on a wide range of issues that arise in the course of business operations. We specialise in helping to identify potential legal risks, propose strategies to mitigate them, and offer solutions to complex legal problems.

Essentially, at Rajvin Gill & Co, our goal is to forge strong relationships with our corporate clients and play a critical role in assisting them with their legal needs, protecting their interests, ensuring compliance, and facilitating transactions and operations in a legally sound manner.
