Non-competes and Trade Secrets

All companies have vital interests and proprietary information in need of protection from unscrupulous employees and competitors. These may include customer information databases, trade secrets, business strategies or financial data. To help you protect that information, we advise you on:

Enforceable Agreements

We protect our clients’ assets with ironclad non-compete and confidentiality agreements. Our attorneys serve as national and regional non-compete counsel to numerous publicly traded and privately held companies. We regularly draft and update employers’ restrictive covenants to ensure all competition and confidentiality agreements are current, comprehensive and enforceable.

Aggressive Enforcement

Disloyal employees or contractors can cause immediate and irreparable damage by violating the trust of their employer. We work with clients to assertively pursue prompt action in court. Our team of more than 50 employment litigators has represented a wide range of employers, from manufacturers to financial service providers, in fast-track litigation.

Getting Results

Our clients have obtained victories including preliminary injunctive relief, permanent injunctive relief and substantial damages recovery. These successes also serve as long-term deterrents to future violations by other employees.
