Hopkins Centrich is a Woodlands law firm with attorneys experienced in drafting, enforcing, and defending against the enforcement of restrictive covenants (e.g., non-competition and non-solicitation agreements) and the legal issues that can arise from them. Whetherdrafting effective non-compete clauses and agreements or enforcing them against violations, our attorneys are experienced in helping businesses and professionals protect their rights.
Restrictive covenants (e.g., non-competition, non-solicitation, confidentiality agreements) attempt to protect an employer’s legitimate business interests by attempting to set parameters on an employee’s ability to compete in the business world against his or her previous employer. From soliciting clients of the former employer to hiring former co-workers and encroaching on business trade secrets, restrictive covenants address a variety of activities. What many businesses fail to realize is that a restrictive covenant that is poorly drafted, such as being too broad or restrictive, can render it unenforceable. That is why engaging a law firm experienced in drafting, enforcing, and defending against restrictive covenants is essential.
Lee Winkelman and Joe Centrich have experience dealing with non-competition agreements whether between a company and a former owner, two companies or a company and a key employee. If you are in the Woodlands, Conroe or the Houston area and need to discuss you’re a non-compete agreement, contact Hopkins Centrich to speak personally with a business law attorney.
