Upholding Secure Noncompete And Nonsolicitation Agreements

To protect your business, you may require employees to sign noncompete or nonsolicitation agreements. These important agreements can prevent the spread of trade secrets and prevent employees from assisting your direct competitors. Howard & Hardyman LLP can help you draft secure employment contracts and ensure that they are upheld.

Drafting Legally Binding Agreements

With over 70 years of combined experience, our lawyers understand how to defend your business. We can draft secure noncompete contracts that prevent employees from damaging your business's future or supporting your competitors. Additionally, we can create nonsolicitation agreements that prevent employees from soliciting the loyalty of your clients or other employees if they depart your company.

The court may refuse to uphold your contracts if they are deemed unreasonable in scope or duration. Our lawyers will work closely with you to implement the conditions that you would like to include while remaining within the legally enforceable boundaries. We work as your consultants to provide solutions that meet your business's requirements for security and growth.

Enforcing Your Business's Contracts

Departing employees may accidentally or knowingly break their noncompete or nonsolicitation agreements. Our attorneys will strongly defend your rights as a business owner, either in or out of court. We will skillfully demonstrate the reasonableness and legitimacy of your contract to ensure that the court upholds your rights.
