Non-Competition, Confidentiality & Trade Secrets

Employee mobility is a prominent feature of the modern economy.  Job-hopping employees create both opportunity and risk for employers.  Taft’s attorneys are prepared to help navigate this potentially difficult area.  On the preventative side, we help employers protect their goodwill and proprietary information through covenants not to compete, non-solicitation and non-disclosure agreements, and best practices for handling sensitive business information.  When employees decide to move from one job to another, we advise how to handle the transition and obtain the strongest possible position in any resulting disputes.  Litigation sometimes becomes necessary to resolve these disputes, and our attorneys are experienced in conducting emergency injunction hearings and all other aspects of the process to protect our clients’ business interests.
