Handling Noncompete, Nonsolicitation And Confidentiality Agreements

Employment contracts that can be essential to a business limit what an employee can do after he or she leaves that company. These types of restrictive covenant contracts are sometimes referred to as noncompete agreements, nonsolicitation agreements and confidentiality agreements. If you are a business looking to retain talent or take on new employees, it may be beneficial to enlist an experienced attorney to help create a new agreement or address an existing one.

Addressing All Aspects Of Noncompete Agreements

Our Buffalo, New York, attorneys at The Tarantino Law Firm handle all aspects of noncompete, nonsolicitation and confidentiality agreements, among other employment-related issues, including:

  • Drafting agreements: The language included in a noncompete or other limiting contract is crucial. The way a contract is worded can mean the difference between it being enforceable or not. Our firm can advise you on how to structure your noncompete agreements and draft one based on your specific needs.
  • Enforcing agreements: When an employee has left the company and he or she signed a noncompete, it may be important that the contract is enforced. We can send a letter to the former employee reminding him or her of the contractual limitations, and pursue the matter through negotiation or litigation if the noncompete has already been breached.
  • Attempting to have an agreement voided: In order to retain new talent, it may be beneficial for a business to see that a noncompete from a previous employer is no longer applicable. We have experience negotiating these matters, and can work with the employee, your business or opposing counsel to see that the matter is settled whenever possible and your new employee can thrive.
  • Consulting on agreements: We can consult with employees who have been threatened with a noncompete agreement, as well as employers who are considering creating one for employees.
