Protect Your Business With Effective Non compete And Non disclosure Agreements

Businesses, including franchise businesses, rightly seek to protect their interests by requiring employees to enter non-compete and non-disclosure agreements, preventing them turning the training and knowledge you invested in them back at you.

The problem arises when the agreements are not enforceable — and the protection you thought you had disappears into air.

The business attorneys at Gottschlich & Portune, LLP, of Dayton, Ohio, work with employers to craft covenants that achieve the goal of protecting the company's mission-critical information and processes, while respecting the rights of departing employees.

Non compete Agreements With Teeth, Which Are Also Enforceable

The law recognizes that employers have the right to require non-compete, non-dealing, non-solicitation, non-poaching and non-disclosure agreements. But you must satisfy the court's insistence that these agreements be reasonable and not extend infinitely into the future. If the agreements seem to overreach, to demand more than your business's legitimate interests justify, your agreements may be disallowed, leaving you worse off than you started.

Let us draft agreements for you that are realistic, assertive and effective, but will not strike a judge as overreaching. This requires knowing the nature of your business, of your locale, and of the market in which you do business. The result will be a custom agreement that meets your needs without violating the rights of others.

Our lawyers also represent clients in non-compete and Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) violations claims cases.
