Challenging Non-Compete Clauses and Arbitration Agreements
The purpose of a non-compete agreement or arbitration agreement is to protect an employer, partner or company from malicious or damaging actions by a former partner, employee, etc. .
An employee rights lawyer with the firm may be able to disprove the validity of a non-compete clause or arbitration agreement and thus allow you to take a desired legal action against a former or current employer so you are free to proceed in your professional life as you wish.
You may also need legal representation in any dispute over the misappropriation of trade secrets of a former employer. Trade secrets can include not only secret product formulas but everyday business information such as customer lists, business and corporate plans and agendas, spreadsheets, and more. Speak with a lawyer as soon as possible to get the legal counsel you need in such a situation.
