Commercial law refers to the body of law that regulates the relations, persons and conduct of the parties that are involved in any form of commercial transaction. Commercial law deals in the relationship of people both in the private as well as the public sector. Some of the most common titles and areas that are covered under commercial law include:
- The relationship between a principal and their agent
- Carriage of goods that is conducted on both land as well as sea
- Shipping that is made through the use of merchants
- Bills of exchange
- The regulation of contracts that have been entered into for commercial purposes
- Insurance covers for the risks such as against fire, life, marine and other common accidents.
