Alternative Dispute Resolution


KSB Law believes in the foundation of helping businesses and individuals explore alternative measures to litigation to find practical solutions to workplace conflict.

The use of effective dispute resolution techniques — guided by a skilled arbitrator or mediator — can preserve business relationships, protect interests, and minimize protracted disputes.

KSB Law offers a broad range of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) services. Our attorneys serve as impartial neutrals on panels with the American Arbitration Association in arbitrations and mediations to help parties resolve disputes. We also help our clients resolve their conflicts through alternatives measures to litigation. Our ADR services include the areas of:

  • Employment Arbitration and Mediation

  • Commercial Arbitration

  • Consumer Arbitration

  • Fraud Arbitration


The American Arbitration Association (AAA) has recognized the qualifications of KSB Law attorneys in ADR by and through their service on the AAA's Commercial, Employment, and Consumer Arbitration Panels, and its Mediation Panel.

Employment Arbitration and Mediation

KSB Law offers clients and parties a positive and collaborative approach fostered over years of experience handling employment matters for both plaintiffs (employees) and defendants (employers). Our background in complex employment cases involving the highest levels of management and in protected classes relating to discrimination, harassment, and retaliation enhances that balanced perspective.

We provide employment arbitrations and mediations involving federal and state laws such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), Family & Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (NJ LAD), Conscientious Employee Protection Act (CEPA), New Jersey Wage and Hour Law (NJ WHL) and NJ Wage Payment Act (NJ WPA), common law and protections under other state employment laws.

Commercial Arbitration

KSB provides neutral arbitration services in commercial and business law disputes, such as contract-related disputes, and partnerships or shareholder disputes.

Such matters may include disputes involving breaches of contract, disputes over contract terms, efforts to collect overdue contracted amounts, and claims seeking performance of contracts related to vendor agreements, supplier agreements, work-for-hire agreements, independent contractor agreements, confidentiality agreements as to trade secrets and proprietary information, and claims governed by the Uniform Commercial Code. Partnership and shareholder disputes often include claims of oppression by a minority shareholder, misappropriation or misuse of business funds, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty and claims for dissolution.

Fraud Arbitration

We provide neutral arbitrator services for business and individual civil fraud claims.

Civil consumer fraud claims can include claims of violations of the Consumer Fraud Act against businesses in advertising or selling goods or services. Claims also can involve deceptive, harassing, or abusive collection practices in violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.  

Civil fraud claims can include common law fraud and consumer claims. Related claims sometimes involve allegations of misappropriated funds, intentional misrepresentations, negligent misrepresentations, fraudulent transfers of property and other assets, or conspiracy to defraud.

Statutory claims might include asserted violations of the Uniform Fraudulent Transfer Act or the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO).
