Corporate and Securities Law

While corporate and securities law are highly related, there are important differences between these branches of law. These differences mainly arise from the legal definition of securities and corporations.

What Is Securities Law?

Securities are defined as financial tools, such as stocks and bonds. There are generally regulated by the government. Therefore, securities law is mostly based in federal law, though sometimes state law can apply to these elements. Securities lawyers must therefor be familiar with complex and constantly changing federal business laws.

What Is Corporate Law?

Corporate law, as named, covers corporations as legal entities. Corporations are created under state law, meaning corporate law is based in state law. These laws cover the internal affairs of the company and the requirements it must follow as laid out by the state. Corporate lawyers need extensive knowledge of different state laws as they apply to companies.
