Lawyers Help Employees Evaluate Noncompete and No Solicitation Agreements
Skilled attorneys clarify rights and restrictions for workers when a job ends
Companies often require employees to sign documents agreeing not to work for a competing firm. During the term of one's employment, it is appropriate for a worker to avoid contact with a competitor. However, when these agreements, or covenants, extend beyond their departure, a former employee might be unfairly and unlawfully restricted from earning a living in their chosen field. At Braverman, PLLC, we provide authoritative legal advice regarding noncompete and no solicitation agreements for workers. We offer the informed advocacy you require whether you previously executed a noncompete or no solicitation agreement or you've just been presented one to review.
Law firm offers comprehensive counsel on laws governing noncompete and no solicitation covenants
States take different approaches to noncompete and no solicitation agreements, so it is important that you get personalized advice based on your location and the employer's headquarters. Our attorneys will analyze the document to tell you what terms, if any, are enforceable. In states where post-employment covenants are enforceable, the restrictions usually must be reasonable. Particular terms at issue can include:
- Defining what types of businesses can be considered as competitive
- Establishing a geographic area within which firms might be affected by the agreement
- How long restrictions can remain in effect
- Consideration you will receive for executing a noncompete or no solicitation agreement
- Provisions relating to proprietary and confidential and other intellectual property
- Limits on working with former customers or clients after moving to a new job
Even if you signed an agreement, there is a strong likelihood that some or all of its terms might not be enforceable. Our lawyers can help you seek a lawful and fair arrangement.
