|Restrictive covenants comprise one of the most active areas of litigation in employment law. The cases are quite complicated. Most of these cases involve request for injunctions. They also involve trade secrets act issues, along with issues relating to confidentiality, corporate opportunity, breach of fiduciary duty, and the like. One of our partners has lectured other lawyers regarding restrictive covenants and non-compete agreements and has written articles on the topic.
GKWW has handled dozens of restrictive covenant cases. The ability to restrict a former company employee and fiduciary from competing against that company may protect the very existence of a company.
