A covenant not to compete or non-compete agreement is one of the most commonly used forms of employment contract. When a business hires a skilled professional to perform services for the company, either as an employee or as an independent contractor, it often requires a written agreement not to compete. This allows a business to share information about its practices, marketing programs or other proprietary information, free from concerns that it will later face unfair competition from someone it trusted.
If you are facing an issue with a non-compete agreement, contact our Houston commercial litigation lawyer at the Massey Law Firm PLLC. We take cases on contingency and are dedicated to finding solutions that protect your best interests.
A related area of commercial employment litigation is non-solicitation litigation. If a former employee threatens the health of your business by attempting to directly entice your customers away you may be able to take legal action to defend your interests with the help of our Houston contract litigation attorney.
This is especially important if the offending party is using confidential client lists or pricing information obtained during their employment with you. By filing a business tort lawsuit you can attempt to put an end to the situation and you might also be able to secure an injunction to prevent your competitor from benefiting from stealing your information.
