You can protect your company's secrets from former employees and competitors through the use of restrictive covenants. There is a popular belief among business owners in Texas that these agreements are not enforceable in court. By drafting your restrictive covenants properly, you can enforce them if a former employee violates the agreement.
At Key Harrington Barnes PC, in Dallas, Texas, our lawyers will ensure that your restrictive covenants will hold up under scrutiny. We understand how to draft these documents so they protect your company's secrets and keep important information secure. State law regarding restrictive covenants continues to change. We keep up with these changes and help your company remain competitive by preventing the theft of important information.Keeping the Competition at Bay
The point of restrictive covenants is to prevent your current employees from taking or using valuable knowledge if they go to work for the competition. State law prohibits restrictions that go beyond the scope of fair competition. Our attorneys know how to structure and litigate the following types of restrictive covenants:
- Noncompete agreements
- Nondisclosure agreements
- Nonsolicitation agreements
- Trade secrets
- Poaching employees and employee raiding
Our firm will review your current employment agreements and ensure they are up-to-date and enforceable. We can also help you enforce them if one of your employees violates a contract agreement. Your employee may not be the only defendant in your complaint; you may be entitled to list competitors as defendants as well. We have a strong track record in employment litigation and will aggressively protect your company's rights.Keep Your Company's Important Information Protected
