Our attorneys have experience in both the prosecution and defense of litigation arising between business rivals in jurisdictions throughout the United States, including claims involving the violation of covenants not to compete, misappropriation of trade secrets, theft of electronic data, breach of fiduciary duty, unfair competition, tortious interference with contracts or prospective business advantage, “raiding” of employees and similar issues. Our attorneys have represented clients in a wide variety of industries, ranging from small businesses to multi-million dollar companies.

We frequently counsel clients on methods of protecting their confidential business information and trade secrets, eliminating or limiting potential liability when hiring employees. We draft non-competition and non-disclosure agreements for our clients and review such agreements to evaluate their enforceability. Non-competition agreements that are too long in duration, too broad in geographic scope or both may not enforceable.
