Complex Litigation:

The Uniform Commercial Code (UCC)

The Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) is one of the uniform acts that has been spread in connection with efforts to harmonize sales and commercial transaction laws in every state. The UCC was a project of the American Law Institute and the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws. The UCC is a recommendation of laws that should be accepted in the states. Once enacted in a state by the legislature, it becomes true law.

The UCC is a model code, therefore it does not have legal effect in a jurisdiction unless its provisions have been enacted by the individual legislatures as statutes. To date, the UCC, partially or completely, has been enacted, with some local variation, in all 50 states.

The UCC is often used in commercial litigation lawsuits. These laws affect several types of business, such as mortgage companies, distributors, shipping companies, financial institutions, lenders, retailers and companies that sell or purchase goods and services.
