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.
