The fact is, plain and simple, if your new or would-be employer is asking you to sign a Non-Competition Agreement, you should consult with an experienced employment-law attorney before you sign. Non-Compete Agreements, also known as Restrictive Covenants, basically prevent an employee from working in a business similar to that of his or her former employer, so they can greatly affect a former employee’s ability to work.
Employees should review a Non-Compete Agreement with the knowledgeable employment lawyers of Lebau & Neuworth to help avoid disputes arising from non-competition issues – of course, the best time to review the agreement is before it is signed.
Lebau & Neuworth has considerable experience negotiating contracts and agreements for our clients in a variety of employment and partnership contexts, and we represent them when a party to a contract breaches, threatens to breach or is accused of breaching an agreement.
