Noncompetition Covenants

A non-competition covenant can be a valuable tool to protect a business interest, whether you are protecting an existing business or buying one. Non-competition clauses are commonly included in employment contracts, sale agreements and shareholder agreements. A well drafted non-competition covenant may mean the difference between the success or failure of a business. The difficulty with these covenants comes in their enforceability. The clauses receive additional judicial scrutiny, and there are occasions when courts will not enforce these kinds of covenants.

That is why you need experienced attorneys to assist you in drafting and enforcing non-competition covenants. Our attorneys have represented companies, shareholders, and individual employees in these cases, with an impressive track record.
