Develop an understanding of how the various articles of the UCC fit together. Gain key strategies for drafting documents and litigating matters within the scope of the code. Attorneys will come away from this seminar with a significant advantage at every phase of a transaction governed by the UCC, whether it is transactional, litigation or during the ongoing business process.
