Non-compete agreements are increasingly more common in today’s competitive business environment.
Non-compete agreements, confidentiality and other restrictive covenants are a great tool for protecting trade secrets, customer lists, and other sensitive information, but only if the agreement is enforceable in a court of law. The issue of enforceability of non-compete agreements is a complex legal question that is the subject of much business litigation. If you are party to a non-compete or confidentiality agreement – whether as an employee or employer – it is helpful to consult with a knowledgeable business litigation attorney like the Hinsdale business litigation attorneys at Lubin Austermuehle. We have represented employees and employers throughout DuPage, Cook, Kane and Lake Counties in non-compete litigation including representing large public corporations and high level executives in lawsuits arising from non-compete agreements. We also draft non-compete and confidentiality agreements for our corporate clients.
