Non Compete Agreements and Confidentiality Agreements
In today's business environment, it is common for employers to require workers to sign employment agreements at hiring. These restrictive covenants are meant to prevent an employee from stealing trade secrets or using insider knowledge to start a competing business. If a non-compete clause is too broad, the employee may be able to challenge its legitimacy, seeking nullification and any damages. If a confidentiality agreement is breached, the employer may sue the employee and other parties who benefited.
When representing clients in non-compete agreement litigation, Mr. Ittleman will examine the facts of the case and the terms of the non-compete agreement to advise on the merits of a claim or potential exposure to damages. While resolution through negotiation, mediation or arbitration may be possible, Mr. Ittleman will not hesitate to protect the interests of his clients in litigation.
