Experienced Lawyers in Writing, Interpreting and Litigating Non-Compete Agreements in Texas
Businesses invest a lot in ensuring that they remain profitable and competitive in today’s global economy. Part of ensuring that competitiveness is taking steps to prevent employees from working for a competitor and applying the confidential and proprietary knowledge gleaned from you for your competitor’s benefit. Siebman Forrest can represent your interests concerning the enforcement of non-competition agreements.
Dedicated Representation in All Non-Competition Matters
Siebman Forrest handles all types of legal matters concerning non-compete agreements. Our attorneys can review and draft agreements to ensure that they are legally enforceable. We also can look over these types of agreements for both employees and employers in order to identify which legal rights and obligations may be covered under a current proposed agreement.
Whether a covenant not to compete is enforceable often will turn on whether the agreement is reasonable. If an agreement is reasonable and instituted to serve some greater goal, such as the protection of trade secrets, and supported by consideration, then it may be enforceable. As with every legal matter, the potential outcome of any given case is fact specific. Our Texas employment contract lawyers can take a close look at non-compete agreements for businesses and employees to determine whether they are likely enforceable.
