Find an Attorney Focused on Non-Compete Agreements
Because they involve an employee's right to earn a living and an employer's right to protect its investment in its business, every non-compete dispute is high stakes. Some non-compete agreements are narrowly drafted and appropriate for the relationship at issue. Many are not. And unduly restrictive agreements can have a devastating financial impact on a worker, putting his or her family and way of life at risk. Litigation over non-compete and non-solicitation agreements are neither easy nor simple. Most often, a former employer will file a lawsuit against the worker, seeking a temporary restraining order or a preliminary injunction limiting the abilities of the worker. We have experience litigating these claims in both state and federal courts based on the specific facts at hand and the applicable law. Our representation includes defending actions on legal grounds challenging the scope, duration, reasonableness, and overall enforceability of the agreements. In some cases, we pursue counterclaims against the employer seeking monetary damages for its own wrongful conduct. If you or someone you know has a non-compete or non-solicitation issue, Pospisil Swift can help. Please contact us for a free initial consultation.
