Non-Compete Agreements: A Tool to Protect Your Confidential Information
- Myth: Non-Compete Agreements Are Generally Unenforceable
- Reality: A Well-Written Non-Compete can protect your company from having its employees or confidential information leave for competitors.
It is true that non-competes were not generally enforceable, but the law has rapidly evolved to make more non-competes enforceable. Your competitors are using non-compete agreements which are enforceable to the maximum extent the law permits. Why aren’t you? Even if you have a non-compete agreement that was written a few years ago, you need to have that agreement evaluated to see whether it provides you with the best protection. Non-competes must be carefully crafted to the individual circumstances of an employee so it is important to have competent legal counsel.
