A Houston business and employment attorney is a great resource to have in your corner when drafting non-compete agreements, or if you require litigation during a non-compete dispute. One of our business attorneys at Garcia-Martin and Martin would be happy to help you draft a non-compete agreement that protects a legitimate business interest for your company (a trade secret or pool of current clients). We can also represent you in court should an employee breach their non-compete agreement and share your trade secrets with competitors or steal your clients. If you are an employee who feels your employer violated the terms of your non-compete agreement, we can also help you find a resolution for your case.
Non-compete agreements exist to protect both an employer and their employees. A standard non-compete agreement states that an employee cannot work for a competitor or start their own competitive business, while working for their employer. It may also include a length of time following the end of their employment, where they are forbidden from recruiting current clients to their new business. As mentioned earlier, these types of agreements help businesses guard their trade secrets and customer base.
