Noncompete Agreement Legal Counsel For Protection Of Your Business Interests

Creative — Responsive — Cost-Effective

Your company's business advantage may depend heavily on exclusivity of sales territory, customer lists and established business relationships. Employees — current or past — may do your business great harm by taking such information and using it for their own entrepreneurial ventures or when working for a competitor. A contractual agreement — a noncompete agreement or nonsolicitation agreement — can obligate an employee to refrain from soliciting or doing business with your leads or customers during or after the period of employment with your enterprise.
