What Is A Noncompete Agreement?

A noncompete agreement is a contract typically between an employee and an employer in which the employee agrees not to compete with the employer by starting a similar business, working for a competitor, or soliciting customers or employees. A noncompete agreement may be signed when a new employee is hired or during the course of employment.

A noncompete agreement can be specifically drafted to address the unique business needs and circumstances that apply. If you are an employer, we can help you draft a noncompete agreement to protect your business's interests. If you are an employee who has been asked to sign a noncompete agreement, we can review the contract to ensure you are not limited in future employment opportunities.

Has an employee breached a noncompete agreement? Has your employer accused you of violating a noncompete agreement? We can help you take appropriate legal steps to ensure your personal and professional interests are protected.
