Shield Your Business Assets With Strong Non-Compete Agreements
When a former employee leaves your company, they leave with the knowledge of your clients, your processes, your products and the inner workings of your business as a whole. Many business owners have good reason to want to ensure that former employees cannot use this special knowledge against their business. Non-compete agreements are among the strongest ways to prevent competitors from gaining access to your trade secrets through former employees and affiliates.
In order to protect customer and client relations, Madigan, Dahl & Harlan, P.A., assists its business and individual clients in the negotiation, drafting and enforcement of covenants not to compete. Non-compete agreements are an integral part of the success of any business, and we have been helping companies draft them for decades. Allow our Minneapolis lawyers to draft your non-compete agreements. Schedule a consultation at our law firm to learn more about how we can help you.
Protecting Your Business’s Important Information In Minnesota
Protecting your confidential and proprietary information is critical to the future of your business. In a climate of ever-changing technology and business relationships, our attorneys help protect your competitive position in the marketplace and minimize your litigation risk.
Non-compete agreements, if valid, will prevent individuals from divulging your most important trade secrets. They will also stop employees from stealing your intellectual property and starting up their own competing enterprise.
What Are The Requirements For A Valid Non-Compete Agreement?
It is important to have a skilled lawyer with experience in both employment law and business law review your documents in order to make sure they comply with the strict Minnesota requirements. Your non-compete agreement must be limited in time and in geography as well as provide protection for the legitimate interests of the employer. Simply attempting to hinder competition is not a valid reason for a non-compete.
