Business Contracts and Litigation
For business clients, we can enforce the shareholder or operating agreements that define the basic structure of your corporation or limited partnership, and also assert your interests as plaintiff or defendant in litigation involving the following:
- Breach of confidentiality agreements, covenants not to compete, and non-solicitation clauses
- Commercial collections, vendor contract or performance issues, and tortious interference with contractual relations
- Violations of licensing, marketing, or distribution agreements
- Insurance disputes, including defense and indemnification issues
- Intellectual property issues, such as infringement on copyright, trademark, or trade dress
Companies competing in the global market place are increasingly asking employees to sign non-compete and confidentiality agreements. While the courts recognize the validity of these kinds of contracts in certain situations, enforceability will depend on whether the restrictions contained in the agreement are reasonable or not. Typically, agreements that extend over a large geographical area, are to remain in effect for more than a year, or place an undue financial burden on someone are not enforceable. Our attorneys advise employers and employees in regard to the enforceability of employment agreements, representing both when rights have been violated or boundaries overstepped.
