Is a commercial lawyer the same as a commercial solicitor?

In NSW, the terms “commercial lawyer” and “commercial solicitor” are often used interchangeably. Both refer to legal professionals specialising in commercial law, offering guidance on various business-related legal matters. The distinction between the two terms is minimal, and the key factor is to engage a legal professional with expertise in commercial law to address your business’s specific legal needs.
