Non-Compete and Restrictive Covenants in Employment Agreements

New York Breach of Contract Claims

Non Compete Agreement Disputes

As a condition of employment, executives, key managers, high-tech employees, and other people with specialized knowledge or access to trade secrets are often asked to sign non-compete agreements. The terms of this type of restrictive covenant may define a particular geographical area in which the employee may not work and will almost always specify a defined period of time that they cannot work for a competitor after their employment has ended.

Breach of contract claims can arise when an employer over steps their bounds in the restrictions they place on employees, and when employees ignore or are unaware of what they can and cannot do as a result.

As one of the most established litigation and alternative dispute resolution firms in the greater Metropolitan New York area, Leeds Brown Law, P.C., confidently handles both contract negotiation and breach of contract claims for individuals and business clients on either side of this issue.

At Leeds Brown Law, PC, our attorneys handle breach of contract claims involving non-compete agreements and other restrictive covenants on behalf of individuals, mid-sized companies and large corporations alike. And while our practice is based in the New York metropolitan area, particularly on Long Island, we can, and do, accept clients from other parts of the U.S. as well.

Our lawyers are experienced and skilled in all aspects of alternative dispute resolution and litigation at both the state and federal court levels. Their work includes both obtaining and fighting against temporary restraining orders and injunctions, the mediation of breach of contract disputes, providing opinions on enforceability issues, and more.

We would be happy to discuss your concerns, and provide free consultations to answer your questions and evaluate your situation. Contact one of our experienced business law and trial attorneys today to discover how we can help you.
