Sale of Goods

Our firm has experience in assuring fair, large-scale B2B transactions

When businesses make large purchases of goods, the key focus most often is on the goods themselves. Quantity, colors, capacity and other features are the primary concerns of both buyers and sellers.

Unfortunately, situations can go awry between the moment of the sale and when products are delivered, unpacked or put into use. Perhaps something was damaged in shipping, the product in some way is inferior or the delivery was late or never occurred at all. Pricing, as agreed upon or as invoiced, sometimes is disputed as well.

Fortunately, the California Uniform Commercial Code (CUCC) helps guide the Sale of Goods agreement to help protect both sides in a transaction. But even with this legal requirement in effect, there are somewhat flexible if unspecific terms that leave open questions. These terms include where goods are to be delivered, what to do in the event that goods are defective, and who is obligated to whom in the case where the goods are not delivered at all.

As a commercial litigator, Abraham Mathews understands how to manage the legal process for buyers and sellers around the CUCC. In many situations, the amount of money at stake may be considerable. But just as important is the successful functioning of the business – without the goods as ordered, or payment as agreed, an entire enterprise can seize up, damaging its short and long-term prospects.

Our law firm is experienced in correcting such situations such that the impact is minimized and fair remuneration is achieved.
