Trade Secrets and Non-compete Agreements
We assist our corporate and individual clients in drafting, reviewing, and negotiating employment agreements, severance agreements, non-competition and non-solicitation agreements, and also litigating disputes arising out of these agreements.
Many employees believe it is easier to just sign a severance agreement and move on, but it is worthwhile to have an attorney review the agreement before signing it to fully understand what you are signing. Please speak with one of our attorneys before agreeing to terms in any employment agreement, so that we can help you be aware of risks and potential legal consequences. If you are considering leaving your current position or believe you may be terminated, contact us for advice on whether we can negotiate a severance package to smooth your transition.
The end of an employment relationship is often just the beginning of concerns about unfair competition, solicitation of customers or other employees, and protecting confidential information and trade secrets, such as customer lists, business methods, and other proprietary information. We regularly advise clients about these issues and litigate to protect our clients’ interests in court.
