Business law covers almost every facet of legal work. It provides the opportunity to work in a broad variety of specialties in a host of different settings, including law firms of every size, in-house corporate counsel and government regulatory agencies. The larger the firm or agency, the more specialized its attorneys. Top employers in the U.S. federal government include the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Federal Communications Commission (FCC), Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).
Attorneys practicing business law participate in litigation, manage contract negotiation, process business transactions, conduct regulatory compliance, provide tax advice, manage intellectual property, conduct international research, and help their clients avoid legal problems through wise counsel. And that’s just a few of the areas of emphasis.
Business lawyers have a great deal of flexibility in choosing their career paths. Trademark, Compliance, Bankruptcy and Employment Law are among the most sought-after legal specialties, and developing expertise in these or other fields of practice enables skilled attorneys to hone their talents for career progression. As you build your portfolio of expertise, Lucas Group can help you find your next ideal opportunity and advance your legal career.
