Employment

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 it should have its employees sign a non-solicitation agreement. Some clients, rather than needing a non-compete or non-solicitation agreement, need a confidentiality and non-disclosure agreement. Although the laws of Texas provide some protection to 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 effective agreements to protect the use and disclosure of business information.
