Non-Compete Agreements

Non-competes—Employer

Employers can protect themselves against unfair competition by departing employees with carefully drafted non-compete agreements. This area of the law is constantly evolving and agreements must be reviewed frequently to ensure they comply with the current laws. Once a non-compete in in place, if an employee leaves and begins violating the agreement, we spring into action to enforce the non-compete through whatever means necessary. Often, enforcing a non-compete requires swift action to obtain a temporary restraining order, keeping the employee from competing.
