It has a separate legal personality.In very many respects, the laws of civil litigation as it applies to companies are the same as with people.In many other respects, however, the laws, practices and procedures applicable to cases taken by or taken against companies can differ markedly to those applicable to individuals or partnerships. Here are some questions/issues that you need to consider before you sue a company:
