In a secured transaction a borrower agrees that the lender may take something owned by the borrower as collateral in case the borrower cannot pay. A negotiable instrument on the other hand, promises the payment of a fixed amount of money. Both of these approaches are essential to modern business loans.
The forming and managing of all types of business entities is a very important area of business and commercial law. There are a variety of common business organization forms, and these may vary from state to state. Most of today's businesses are well served by one of the four major organizational forms, which include the sole proprietorship, the partnership, the limited liability company, and the corporation. Each form of business organization comes with its own specific set of advantages and pitfalls.
