Careful planning and representation is critical to a business’ ability to successfully comply with and reap the maximum benefits of the commercial and business laws that govern its operations.

KSB Law assists businesses (including closely-held businesses, publicly-traded businesses, entrepreneurs, and medical providers) in contract review and negotiations including vendor, supplier, independent contractor, business service, and business associate agreements. We also focus on specific issues such as work-for-hire, non-disclosure, non-solicitation, confidentiality, and non-compete agreements.

We have litigated business disputes in state and federal courts, and in alternative disputes resolution forums such as the American Arbitration Association (AAA) and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).  We provide litigation services and litigation-avoidance techniques to businesses and business owners facing the following types of disputes:

  • Contract disputes

  • Business disputes

  • Partnership and shareholder disputes


Contract disputes

KSB Law assists closely-held businesses, mid-sized businesses, publicly-traded businesses, and entrepreneurs in a full range of general contract disputes, often involving breach of contract claims, actions for the collection of overdue payments, and claims related to the sale of goods under the Uniform Commercial Code.  We also work with clients on dispute-avoid techniques including contract review and negotiations related to business service agreements, vendor agreements, supplier agreements, independent contractor agreements, work for hire agreements, and others.


Business Disputes

KSB Law assists in resolving business disputes that often involve more personalized issues such as non-disclosure agreements, restrictive covenants, non-solicitation agreements, confidentiality agreements, and non-compete agreements, as well as claims involving the misappropriation of funds or proprietary information such as trade secrets.


Partnership and shareholder disputes

Partnership and shareholder disputes can involve claims of oppression by minority shareholders; dissolution claims; claims of breach of contract or breach of fiduciary duty; the misappropriation or misuse of corporate funds, proprietary information or trade secrets; and disputes over non-solicitation agreements, non-compete agreements, or confidentiality agreements.  Matters also can include applications for corporate custodians or receivers to manage the business. 


General business contracts

Our firm’s services include reviewing and negotiating general business contracts related to vendor agreements, supplier agreements, independent contractor agreements, and business service agreements. We also focus on more specific issues such as work-for-hire agreements, non-disclosure agreements, non-solicitation agreements, confidentiality agreements, and non-compete agreements.
