Sophisticated Business Law Services

Business LawThe New Jersey business lawyers at Rabner Baumgart Ben-Asher & Nirenberg, P.C. have extensive experience delivering innovative, strategic solutions to closely held businesses, entrepreneurs, equity holders, executives and senior sales personnel and service professionals in a wide range of industries throughout New Jersey.

Business-related Employment Law Issues

Our attorneys have the benefit of our employment law expertise, which allows us to provide sophisticated legal advice to members of the C-Suite, executives and other senior managers concerning the implications of complex employment law issues, including negotiating and enforcing employment contracts, as well as partnership and shareholder agreements.

Similarly, we help resolve disputes between partners, shareholders, employers, employees, competitors and vendors, including representing owners and partners in business "divorce" litigation.

Compensation Agreements

We have extensive experience relating to negotiating and handling disputes involving compensation agreements, including:

  • Executive compensation;
  • Incentive payments (including bonuses, commissions and profit-sharing); and
  • Equity (including stock grants, stock options, restricted stock units ("RSUs"), and restricted stock awards ("RSAs")).
Executives trust us to assist them in obtaining appropriate compensation, including equity, when they are hired, promoted, purchase the businesses for which they work, or start a competing business.

Restrictive Covenants

Similarly, our New Jersey business law attorneys review, analyze, explain, negotiate and handle disputes relating to restrictive covenants including non-compete, non-solicitation, confidentiality, and non-disclosure agreements ("NDAs") for our clients. This often includes us helping to analyze the risks of taking an action that could be viewed as violating a restrictive covenant, and finding the best way to minimize or avoid those risks.

Severance Agreements

Our lawyers also frequently negotiate the terms of severance agreements for our clients when they are hired or promoted. In addition, we enforce our clients' rights to receive severance or separation pay when they have been fired without cause, resigned for good reason, or they are otherwise entitled to receive it.

Oppressed Minority Shareholders

We represent oppressed minority shareholders who are seeking to protect their legal rights, including ones who have been, or are in the process of being frozen out, deprived of their share of the profits or access to the company's books and records, or fired from the companies they own.

Business Tort Claims

Our New Jersey business lawyers counsel and represent clients who have been the victim of employment or business-related fraud and misrepresentation and tortious interference, or who have been accused of breaching the duty of loyalty to their employer.

Transactional Business Services

We perform a broad range of transactional business services, including the purchase and sale of businesses and real property, as well as related tax analysis.

We can help you structure your business interests to minimize the likelihood that a dispute will arise. But, if a dispute does arise, we can guide you through it. For example, we:

  • Advise entrepreneurs in structuring business ventures and transactions in the most advantageous manner under federal, state and international tax laws;
  • Structure agreements among equity participants in connection with the start-up, expansion or acquisition of closely held business entities;
  • Assist management and third parties acquiring part or all of an ongoing business;
  • Assist in the sale, purchase or restructuring of businesses; and
  • Prepare business and family succession plans.

We afford our clients the caliber of attorneys found at larger law firms, while providing distinct advantages. For example, we offer reasonable legal fees, while providing our clients regular direct contact with our accomplished attorneys who personally address their concerns.
