Non-competition, non-solicitation, and confidentiality agreements
Our attorneys move swiftly and effectively to seek enforcement and defend claims in matters related to breach of non-competition, non-solicitation, and confidentiality agreements. Our experience includes:
- Securing a $2 million award, including punitive damages, in a contested FINRA arbitration. Prior, we obtained a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction. The arbitration panel ruled a departing employee breached non-solicitation and confidentiality agreements, and held the departing employee’s new employer jointly and severally liable for the award.
- Securing a landmark decision on enforcement of a restrictive covenant against a departing employee before the Wisconsin Supreme Court, which held that continued at-will employment constitutes lawful consideration to support a restrictive covenant signed by a current employee.
- Secured stipulated injunctions in favor of our client in multistate, simultaneous litigation, holding defendants to the terms of their contractual non-competition and non-solicitation obligations.
- Successfully enforced a non-competition agreement when a top regional salesperson was hired by a competitor. Our team secured a temporary restraining order within days of the employee’s departure, leading to the employee’s resignation and a favorable case settlement.
- Secured a high-dollar settlement for our client after instituting a FINRA arbitration against departing employees who breached terms of their non-solicitation and confidentiality agreements.
