Covenants Not to Compete, Non-Solicitation Agreements, & Non-Disclosure Agreements
In today’s business environment, a company’s employees, customers, and confidential information are often its most important asset. As a result, businesses frequently are entering into contracts with their employees, their independent contractors, and their customers that contain various restrictive covenants, such as non-compete agreements, non-solicitation agreements, and non-disclosure agreements. These restrictive covenants are also often included as a term in the purchase and sale of a business. Because restrictive covenants can be contracts in restraint of trade, there are very specific rules regarding their enforceability.
