Designing Enforceable Covenants Not To Compete
Internal and external risks can threaten your business’s viability. Covenants not to compete provide proactive solutions that mitigate these risks and help your entity retain its edge over your competitors by prohibiting employees and other parties from sharing valuable information with others.
Our employment law attorneys at Storm & Piscopo, P.C. design and revise noncompete agreements for business owners throughout the Chicagoland area. Should a former employee, vendor or contractor breach the covenant not to compete, we will aggressively defend your interests by filing for an injunction or litigating the matter in court.
Safeguarding Your Business Interests During Hiring And After Discharge
In Illinois, it can be difficult to draft a strong noncompete agreement without a legal background due to changes in state employment laws and court interpretations on these restrictive covenants. Our attorneys have substantial experience practicing employment law, which we use to develop an enforceable agreement that is tailored to your business concerns.
We draft contracts that address employer concerns regarding:
- Technical and business trade secrets
- Client lists
- Financial information
- Nonsolicitation agreements
Our lawyers strive to protect your business from unfair competition by drafting specific terms that are deemed reasonable under Illinois law. We recognize that your business’s development relies on your ability to attract strong candidates and develop their understanding of your business’s marketing practices and product lines. Our contracts are written to secure your propriety information in the event highly trained employees leave to pursue other opportunities.
Defending Against An Unenforceable Covenant Not To Compete
We have many clients who come to us because a former employer wants to use a covenant not to compete to prevent them from working in their field. We carefully scrutinize these contracts in light of the law and have successfully helped clients keep the new jobs and even persuaded many former employers to withdraw their complaints.
