Many employers and employees believe that non-compete agreements are not enforceable in Texas. That is not true. If drafted properly, a non-compete agreement can be a valuable contract to many employers. We are well-versed in preparing non-compete agreements and evaluating whether a proposed or previously signed non-compete is enforceable. We also help our clients analyze whether they should have employees sign a non-solicitation agreement. Some clients, rather than needing a non-compete or non-solicitation agreement, would be better protected by a confidentiality and non-disclosure agreement. Although the laws of Texas provide some protection for employers relating to use of confidential information, such protection can be significantly enhanced through the use of a written agreement addressing what information is confidential and clarifying what information cannot be disclosed by an employee. We have experience drafting these agreements to protect the use and disclosure of business information.
