Brandon Krajewski, Patrick Taylor and Michael Chargo Write Article for Industry Today About Handling Challenging Suppliers Under UCC


Quarles & Brady attorneys Brandon Krajewski, Patrick Taylor and Michael Chargo wrote an article for Industry Today outlining what companies need to understand about how the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) affects the way they handle defective deliveries from suppliers.

Krajewski is a Milwaukee-based partner in the Litigation & Dispute Resolution Practice Group, Taylor is a Milwaukee-based partner in the Business Law Practice Group and Chargo is a Madison-based Business Law associate.

In the article, they outlined the various considerations involved under UCC with the acceptance and rejection of goods, revocation of acceptance of goods and the seller's right to cure. An excerpt:

You recently signed a supply contract for Alpha Corp.'s purchase of widgets from Zeta Corp., which Alpha needs to manufacture its products. The contract contained a detailed list of specifications for the widgets. Unfortunately, you just discovered that Zeta's widgets do not meet the specifications. When approached, Zeta claims they are not responsible for the non-conforming goods because Alpha accepted them. Can this be right? And if so, what now? You call your lawyer, who explains that the UCC (Uniform Commercial Code) has a number of detailed rules related to the acceptance and rejection of goods, a buyer's revocation of acceptance of goods, and a seller's right to cure non-conforming goods.


While acceptance, rejection, revocation and cure are not new legal concepts, executives that develop an understanding of these principals will be well-equipped to guide businesses through supply chain disputes.
