We draft, negotiate, review and revise executive contracts and other employment agreements. We also represent employees in cases of breach of contract when an employer has violated the terms of an employment contract.What Are Restrictive Covenants?
Restrictive covenants are contracts that restrict employees’ freedom. The most common types of restrictive covenants that we deal with are noncompete and nonsolicit agreements. Noncompetes limit an employee’s right to work for a competitor for a certain amount of time after the termination of employment. Nonsolicit agreements restrict an employee’s right to solicit work from and/or do work for a former employer’s clients or customers for a certain amount of time after the termination of employment.
We negotiate, review and revise restrictive covenants at the outset of employment or when they are first presented to an employee. We also challenge the enforceability of restrictive covenants when employees leave. Finally, we defend employees in lawsuits by their former employers seeking to enforce restrictive covenants.Our Lawyers Will Protect Your Rights When You Receive a Severance Agreement
We regularly review and revise severance agreements for employees. If the employee has a potential legal claim, we use that claim as leverage to negotiate increased severance pay.
