Confidential information often is the backbone to a company’s success. With increased labor mobility in the market today, it is imperative to ensure that such information do not fall into the hands of competitors. By incorporating restrictive covenants into employees’ contracts, companies are protected against the loss of confidential information, customers, and existing employees.
We advise employers on the drafting of non-competition, non-dealing, non-solicitation, and non-poaching covenants. We also advise employees on the signing of restrictive covenants to avoid consenting to potentially unreasonable restrictions, which would leave you at a disadvantage when you decide to leave the company.
