Commercial and Business Law

Careful planning and representation are critical to a business’s ability to successfully comply with, and reap the maximum benefits from, 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.

We have litigated business disputes in State and Federal courts, and in alternative dispute resolution forums such as the American Arbitration Association (AAA) and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).  We provide advice and counseling on litigation-avoidance techniques to businesses and business owners facing disputes, including:

  • Contract disputes

  • Business disputes

  • Partnership and shareholder disputes

  • Fraud claims

  • Claims against medical providers


KSB Law assists closely-held businesses, mid-sized businesses, publicly-traded businesses, and entrepreneurs in a full range of general services that includes contract reviews and negotiation and representing clients in contract disputes. Contract disputes may involve breach of contract claims, actions for the collection of overdue payments, and claims related to the sale of goods under the Uniform Commercial Code. Our contract review and negotiation services often involve business service agreements, vendor agreements, supplier agreements, independent contractor agreements, and others. Specific issues regarding contract provisions can also arise such as work-for-hire, non-disclosure, non-solicitation, confidentiality, and non-compete agreements. Additionally, we work with clients on dispute-avoidance techniques, and a fair and well-negotiated contract can be an effective tool to anticipate, address, and prevent future 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.  They may also involve claims related to employee misconduct such as the misappropriation of funds or the disclosure of confidential or proprietary information or trade secrets.


Business disputes can also involve claims of fraud, such as fraudulent inducement of contracts, misappropriation of funds, intentional or negligent misrepresentations, or the fraudulent transfer of real property or other assets.  They can also involve statutory violations such as claims of racketeering and conspiracy under the New Jersey Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), violations of the Uniform Fraudulent Transfer Act, the Insurance Fraud Prevention Act, the Consumer Fraud Act, or the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, among others.  KSB Law helps businesses and entrepreneurs navigate these types of claims, whether they are the victims of fraud or the accused wrongdoers.


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, misappropriation of 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.


KSB Law’s services include reviewing and negotiating general business contracts, including 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.


We provide advice and counseling to medical providers in the form of contract review and negotiations with employers and medical facilities. In the event that medical providers have difficulty navigating the complex regulatory schemes that apply, KSB Law can also represent medical providers who are being pursued by insurance companies for alleged medical billing code violations, insurance fraud, the use of “runners,” improper self-referrals (to themselves, their businesses, or family members), and even racketeering (RICO) claims.
