Trade Secrets & Restrictive Covenants

image09When drafted properly and with care, restrictive covenants in the employment context serve to protect legitimate interests of employers, such as safeguarding trade secrets, proprietary data and other confidential information. Many courts have become increasingly skeptical about non-competes and other restrictive covenants in the employment context because of their impact on the ability of former employees to find a job. Our attorneys know the ins and outs of non-compete agreements and other restrictive covenants, and how to either attack or defend them in court. We have litigated many such cases on behalf of both employees and employers, giving us a depth of knowledge that not only translates well to the litigation context, but also to counseling clients on how to draft or modify such agreements to protect the company’s interests and enhance enforceability.
