Having these agreements drafted and signed by all employees can prevent your business from losing valuable employees and trade secrets to your competitors. By signing a non-compete agreement, an employee promises not to work for a direct competitor for a specified period of time after he or she leaves your company. This may be extremely beneficial for a business because it can prevent a competitor from trying to hire your current employees or prevent disgruntled former employees from divulging sensitive information to a competitor. Please contact the DC law firm of Klaproth Law to have our DC Business lawyers draft your non-compete agreement, non-disclosure agreement, and confidentiality agreements to protect your business.
Our business lawyers will also help you to enforce your non-compete agreement against your former employee.
It is important to understand the terms of the agreement that you sign and the implications of the restrictions on your post employment activities. Please contact Klaproth Law for a legal analysis of your agreement and to determine if its legally enforceable after terminating your employment.
In the event of a dispute over a non-compete, non-disclosure or confidentiality agreement our lawyers are prepared to go to court to:
- Enforce non-compete, non-disclosure and non-solicitation clauses to protect the business
- Challenge unreasonable geographic restrictions on employment after leaving a company
- Prosecute or defend in lawsuits over misappropriation of trade secrets
- Litigate breach of contract, post-hiring ultimatums, or terms of severance
