Using Legal Tools To Protect Proprietary Information
Client data and trade secrets are valuable assets that keep a business operational and successful. Restrictions placed on an employee after termination or resignation are meant to protect those assets, provided that those restrictions are reasonable and otherwise enforceable. Violations of these restrictive covenants can lead to injunctions, interrupting or ending a promising career.
The enforceability of a restrictive covenant can be a hotly contested issue, particularly in the financial services industry. At The Law Offices of Neal Brickman, P.C., our attorneys have a thorough knowledge of restrictive covenants and we know how critical a favorable outcome is to both sides.
We have experience analyzing and litigating the enforceability of restrictive covenants from both the employee and employer perspective. We use this perspective to anticipate arguments from the opposition and develop winning strategies for negotiation and litigation.
Violating Restrictive Covenants Can Have Serious Consequences
Employees must be aware of the possible ramifications of violating restrictive covenants such as noncompete agreements and nonsolicitation agreements. The consequences can be severe and affect the trajectory of a career. It is critical that employees understand the scope of these agreements and seek experienced counsel in the event of a dispute with an employer.
Our attorneys have experience litigating the scope and enforceability of restrictive covenants, including:
- Noncompete agreements
- Nonsolicitation agreements
- Confidentiality agreements
The employment law landscape is constantly changing, and we pride ourselves on keeping abreast of new developments. We know the evolving laws governing employment, and we work closely with our clients to find cost-effective and efficient solutions that support their long-term success.
Our Firm Stands Up For Small Businesses
Small businesses are essential to our economy, and our firm frequently partners with these businesses to help them protect their interests in employment law disputes. While larger companies have extensive resources, including in-house legal counsel, small business owners often must fend for themselves when legal matters arise.
Our small business clients are innovators, which means their intellectual property and trade secrets are essential to their success. Our attorneys know what is important to small business owners, and how to protect their best interests in matters involving restrictive covenants. We offer flexible billing arrangements so our small business clients can afford the same level of experience and legal service as their larger competitors.
