Michael S. Simone, Esq.
Commercial litigation encompasses every type of dispute that can arise in a business. Whether you are a small partnership, large corporation, or sole proprietor, it is important that every business be aware of the various laws and regulations that can and will affect how you operate and deal with consumers and other businesses. Being proactive with business problems is key to running a successful business and avoiding certain legal issues.
It is especially critical to be aware of laws known as “consumer protection” laws, which have strict regulations and rules for businesses selling goods and services to the general public.
Specifically in New Jersey, under the New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act, businesses who are found to have violated these regulations shall pay to the consumer “treble damages,” or three times the actual damages incurred, plus attorneys’ fees.
Even a seemingly innocent violation of this law can lead to disastrous consequences for a business due to per se violations. As a result, it is extremely important that businesses be properly guided on how to deal with the general public and their customers.
