Dedicated Help For Your Non-Compete Issues
Have you been asked to sign a Non-Compete Agreement? Did you already sign a non-compete and need to understand its terms? If so, we can help. Our employment attorneys have reviewed and negotiated thousands of non-compete agreements which are also known as restrictive covenants. We offer a flat-rate to review your non-compete agreement, meet with you in person or by phone to go over the agreement and your specific situation and can provide you with our written comments and changes to the non-compete to forward to your current or former employer. We can also represent you and work to negotiate the non-compete on your behalf with your current, former or potential employer. Please give us a call to begin the process or complete the form on this website to speak with one of our attorneys.
A non-compete agreement can be very costly – both financially and professionally. Professionally: a non-compete agreement can prevent you from obtaining alternate employment or for continuing in your chosen profession. It could require you to move to another state, county or even country if you wish to continue in your current profession. Financially: a non-compete can become very expensive. If enforced, you may be prevented from continuing in your new job. Also, the costs to defend against a lawsuit to enforce your non-compete by your former employer can be very expensive. We have seen cases cost over $40,000 to defend against a non-compete agreement. However, there are ways to limit these costs and protect yourself. We will go over all of these things during the meeting to discuss your non-compete.
If you are being asked to sign a non-compete, we will go over the non-compete to determine whether it is valid under the law and can be enforced against you. We will discuss options to protect yourself in the future in the event that your employer plans to try and enforce the non-compete. We will also work on the language based on your potential future employment plans to try and limit the terms of the non-compete so that you can find alternate employment after your employment ends with your current employer.
We commonly hear from clients that they don’t believe that a non-compete agreement is enforceable. This is not the case generally and your non-compete could very well be enforceable and prevent you from leaving your current company to work for a competitor. There are ways to protect yourself and we will work with you to help protect you from any damages or costs related to your non-compete agreement.
