More employers than ever are using noncompetition, confidentiality, and nonsolicitation agreements to prevent competition and solicitation of their customers and employees, and to protect their confidential information. Though these agreements come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and despite their varying scopes, the legal framework governing the enforceability of these agreements reflects uniform general principles, as reviewing courts endeavor to balance the former employer's legitimate interest in protecting its intangible assets against the former employee's need to earn a living and the free market's interest in healthy competition. Whether practitioners are looking to draft a noncompete, nonsolicitation, or confidentiality agreement, this InFORMed Annotated Legal Document will provide a comprehensive overview of noncompete basics and drafting rational, the current case law and statutes that govern their use and enforcement, and useful and valuable practice points from the author.
The companion eFormbook provides the form(s) in an unannotated format that users can download and customize for their clients.
