Non-Competes & Restrictive Covenants

Creating confidentiality.

Talented people and proprietary information comprise the heart and soul of many businesses, which make arrivals and departures of key employees of great importance, particularly when those employees have access to sensitive data and processes.

Our team helps clients get out in front of key issues. We bring years of experience to drafting and interpreting non-competes and restrictive covenant agreements (including covenants regarding confidentiality, customer non-solicitation and employee raiding). Our attorneys know that developing and implementing these tools at the beginning of employment relationships is the most effective way to avoid costly disputes when a key employee departs. Husch Blackwell monitors the state-specific laws in this area to ensure our clients are up-to-date and protected.

When disputes arise, we pivot quickly to a litigation posture, building multi-disciplinary teams capable of taking the offense or defense in non-compete and/or restrictive covenant litigation. These cases often involve fast-tracked hearings and petitions for injunctive relief, and our lawyers have significant experience achieving positive results for clients in state and federal courts.
