Roberts focuses his practice on partnership and shareholder disputes (including oppression and dissenter’s rights cases), and especially on attempting to resolve these matters through mediation, if that approach fits the client’s goals and objectives. In 2007, Roberts launched the Shareholder Dispute NJ blog, www.shareholderdisputenj.com, which addresses minority shareholder disputes in New Jersey. In addition, he writes and lectures extensively on this topic. Roberts also has extensive experience in other complex commercial matters including fraud, fraudulent transfers, trade secret, restrictive covenant litigation, and employment litigation.
Roberts earned his J.D., summa cum laude, from Rutgers School of Law-Newark in 1991, where he was a Tischler Scholar (1990), and his B.S., summa cum laude and Order of the Coif, from Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey in 1988.
