Negotiating & Litigating Non-Compete Agreements
The world of business and professional practices can be competitive. It is always important to protect confidential information and competitive advantages to stay ahead of the game. To better protect their business interests, many companies choose to use non-compete agreements or other restrictive covenants, such as non-solicitation or non-service agreements.
If you need help drafting or enforcing a non-compete agreement. The Glennon Law Firm, P.C. is here to help. We represent employers in contract disputes and business litigation involving non-compete agreements in Rochester.
What Is a Non-Compete Agreement?
This can vary depending on the business, profession, industry, and state, but generally, a non-compete agreement seeks to protect a company from losing confidential information, competitive advantages, trade secrets, customers, and employees.
Are Non-Compete Agreements Worthwhile?
With the time, effort, and resources that are put into growing a company, many owners have decided to take action against the loss they face when an employee, partner, or other person leaves and takes their experience, knowledge, and training to a competitor.
While non-compete agreements can be valuable to protect the business or professional practice, they may also be unenforceable under New York law or public policy.
What Determines if The Non-Compete Agreement Can be Enforced?
A non-compete agreement may be found enforceable if it:
- Does not pose a public harm
- Is not overly burdensome
- Is reasonable in terms of location and time
- Addresses legitimate concerns for the business
Depending on the industry or profession, there are numerous issues to consider that could affect or limit the enforceability of a restrictive covenant. Our Rochester non-compete agreement attorneys ensure that your rights and interests are protected to the fullest extent of the law.
