A Day In The Life Of A Commercial Lawyer

Watching re-runs of ‘Suits’ isn’t exactly an accurate depiction of what a commercial lawyer does even though it makes for a good Netflix binge.

Although there is a component of the job that does centre around being in a court room, it’s definitely not where you’ll spend the majority of your time as a commercial lawyer!

It’s important to outline that commercial lawyers operate within a division of civil law. They focus on laws and regulations that govern trade, commerce, sales and merchandising.

Overall, a commercial lawyer’s focus is about getting different parties to agree to compromises and resolving disputes.

This involves a great deal of people skills and understanding all types of personalities and complex commercial disagreements.

Analysing problems and formulating solutions is a daily task along with working well in a team and demonstrating leadership and management skills.

A commercial lawyer in Chatswood will also be advising clients on a day to day basis, in order for commercial transactions or disputes to move forward or be agreed upon.

There is a component of paperwork too – it can’t be avoided!

You may be required to draft documents or review them along with advising the client. You will meet with clients and take multiple calls.

Part of becoming a commercial lawyer also involves finding new clients so you need to be able to scope new business and be able to sell your services.

Areas Of Expertise
