Commercial law is a branch of private law relating to the organization of the activity of merchants and defining the legal regime applicable to commercial acts.

Being regulated by the Commercial Code, commercial law encompasses two aspects:

On the one hand, natural person traders

On the other hand, legal entities, i.e. commercial companies.

Commercial law also organizes commercial leases and the rights arising from them.

In spite of the simplicity and clarity of the articles of the Commercial Code, the intervention of a specialist in the matter remains strongly advised.


Business law is an integral part of private law. It is concerned with the activities of persons who participate in the market economy.

Business companies, but also agricultural or industrial production units that create wealth through a commercial act. Business law seeks the speed and simplicity of markets.
