A non-competition covenant can be a valuable way to protect a business, whether you are protecting your existing business or are buying one. Non-competition clauses are commonly included in employment contracts, sale agreements and shareholder agreements. Well-drafted non-competition covenants may mean the difference between a business’s success or failure. If there is a difficulty in these covenants, it is their enforceability. The clauses receive additional judicial scrutiny, and there are occasions when courts will not enforce these kinds of covenants.
That is why you need experienced attorneys to assist you in drafting and enforcing non-competition covenants. Our attorneys have represented companies, shareholders, and individual employees in these cases, with an impressive track record.
