What is the difference between a corporate lawyer and business lawyer?

When starting or operating a business, you may come across the terms “corporate lawyer” and “business lawyer.” While the two terms are often used interchangeably, they do have distinct differences.

A business lawyer typically focuses on the legal issues that arise in the day-to-day operation of a business. This can include drafting contracts, reviewing employment agreements, advising on compliance with regulations, and representing the business in legal disputes. Business lawyers can also provide legal guidance on a wide range of issues such as intellectual property, labor law, and tax law.

On the other hand, a corporate lawyer generally focuses on the legal issues related to corporations and other large business entities. They can assist with matters such as mergers and acquisitions, corporate governance, and securities law compliance. Corporate lawyers may also work on regulatory issues and assist with financial transactions such as public offerings, private equity investments, and venture capital funding.

While there is some overlap in the work of business and corporate lawyers, the main difference lies in the scope of their work. A business lawyer’s work is generally more focused on the day-to-day legal needs of a business, while a corporate lawyer’s work is more focused on the larger strategic and financial issues of a corporation.
