Non-Competition Agreements

A non-competition agreement can be a valuable tool to protect a business interest, whether you are protecting an existing business or buying one. Non-competition clauses are commonly included in employment contracts, sale agreements and shareholder agreements. A well-drafted non-competition agreement may mean the difference between the success or failure of a business. The difficulty with these agreements comes in their enforceability. The clauses receive additional judicial scrutiny, and there are occasions when courts will not enforce these kinds of agreements.

That is why you need experienced attorneys to assist you in drafting and enforcing non-competition agreements. Our attorneys have extensive experience representing employers, companies, shareholders, and individual employees in these cases.

Employee Benefits

Our Firm provides representation in connection with all forms of employee benefit plans, including:

  • tax-qualified plans, such as 401(k) plans, profit-sharing plans, money purchase pension plans, defined benefit plans, simplified employee pension plans, employee stock ownership plans, and individual retirement account/annuity documents;

  • non-qualified deferred compensation plans, such as Section 457 plans, and other executive compensation plans; and

  • welfare benefit plans, such as cafeteria plans and self-insured medical reimbursement plans.

Riley Bennett Egloff assists clients in the selection, design, drafting and implementation of these plans, either as individually designed plans for specific employers, or as prototype plans for banks, insurance companies, investment firms and trade associations. The Firm also drafts supporting documents and forms for these plans, assists with the Internal Revenue Service qualification process, and provides consultation regarding reporting, disclosure, administrative, fiduciary and other regulatory matters.

In addition, the Firm represents management, plan fiduciaries, and employee benefit plans themselves in employee benefits audits, agency proceedings and litigation.
