Non-Competition & Non-Solicitation Agreements
Non-competition agreements, also known as non-compete agreements, is a contractual clause that prevents an employee from entering into or starting any enterprise, business, profession, or trade that is in competition to his or her employer. Non-compete agreements typically involve a certain timeframe, which may include during the time the contracted individual is employed and following his or her termination or departure from the company. However, in order to be valid, non-competition agreements must be “reasonable,” as determined by a court. If such an agreement is found to be unreasonable by a court, it is possible that the court will invalidate the agreement.
A non-solicitation agreement is similar to a non-compete with some key differences. A non-solicitation clause of an employment contract prohibits an employee from going after the company’s clients/customers for the benefit of the employee or a future employer/competitor. Again, the terms of such a clause must be “reasonable,” and the employer must have a valid, business-related reason for having an employee enter into a non-solicitation agreement. Furthermore, non-solicitation agreements cannot be used to prevent employees and/or customers from voluntarily leaving.
Charles W. Miller & Associates assists high-level executives with both non-compete and non-solicitation agreement negotiations. We can also represent you in litigation proceedings in the event of a dispute.
Our firm also represents plaintiffs in employment and business-related torts. These are claims in which numerous individuals suffer different types of damages in varying degrees as a result of a business’s wrongful practices. In most cases, business torts involve multiple employees suffering economic losses as a result of their employer’s actions, for example, as a result of intentional actions taken to damage an employee’s contractual relationship with a third-party (known as “tortious interference with contractual relations”).
Our firm represents highly paid executives and other professionals in a range of business tort issues, including but not limited to:
- Tortious interference
- Trade secret theft
- Restraint of trade
- Trade libel
- Fraudulent misrepresentation
- Breach of good faith
No matter how complex your situation may be, our firm can help. Together, our legal team has over 22 years of legal experience; we are ready to put that experience to work for you.
