If you own a business, small or large, you know that companies are often involved in business litigation matters involving Uniform Commercial Code (UCC). In fact, cases involving UCC-related matters make up a large portion of commercial litigation in Texas. For this reason, it is important that business owners have an experienced UCC attorney on their side who is knowledgeable in UCC law issues and regulations. 

Understanding UCC Law

The Uniform Commercial Code is the document that most U.S. jurisdictions have adopted—except for Louisiana—that essentially governs most business and commercial legal transactions, in order to standardize buying and selling of goods and services across state lines. The document was released in 1952 by the American Law Institute and the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws, and it has been revised over the years.

Help for UCC Matters

Cases arising under the Uniform Commercial Code can be complex and costly, and a business attorney will need to work hard to protect your business interests. For those professionals who are not familiar with UCC cases, they may be unsuccessful. A skilled UCC lawyer knows how to comply with the UCC and navigate through the provisions and rules governing interstate commerce, including UCC matters that arise involving:

  • Sales of goods
  • Leases
  • Negotiable instruments like commercial paper
  • Bank deposits and collections
  • Funds transfers
  • Letters of credit
  • Warehouse receipts 
  • Investment securities 
  • Secured transactions 

Because UCC laws affect most businesses that deal with purchasing or selling goods and services including retailers, wholesalers, distributors, suppliers, shipping companies, financial institutions, finance companies, and other companies, it is important that your company discuss your UCC matter with a skilled attorney. These concerns may include purchase and sale agreements, delivery issues, breach of warranty issues, risk of loss issues, and more.
