Overview

In today’s business environment, a company’s employees, customers and proprietary information are often its most important asset. As a result, businesses and their valued employees frequently enter into contracts containing various restrictive covenants, such as non-compete agreements, non-solicitation agreements and non-disclosure agreements. While these kinds of agreements were once limited to top executives and difficult to enforce, they are now an effective tool to protect the company’s competitive assets.
