Restrictive Covenants

Employees transitioning from their existing employer to a competitor, and employers hiring employees away from a competitor, must be mindful of the consequences when a non-compete, non-solicitation or confidentiality agreement exists. Intellectual property, client data and trade secrets are — potentially — valuable assets to be protected by contractual provisions that are reasonable and otherwise enforceable.

The Law Offices of Neal Brickman, P.C., has been at the forefront of this area of law for many years. The firm has represented employers in drafting, and employees in negotiating, restrictive covenants. We have successfully represented employers seeking to enforce these restrictive covenants as well as employees and employers seeking to avoid their effect. These matters are particularly sensitive and require precisely the type of responsive, dedicated, and innovative talent that we can provide.
