Commercial Law and Contracts

Commercial and contract law is relevant to the sale of goods and services, the sale of property, the exchange of money, employment contracts, and more.

These issues are governed by common law rules along with a separate body of law called the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC). The UCC pertains to most commercial business transactions. Lawyers look to the UCC when resolving disputes involving warranties, the sale of goods, negotiable instruments, bulk sales, investments, secured transactions, bank deposits, letters of credit, warehouse receipts, the lease of goods and bank deposits.
