Non-Compete Agreement Disputes

Non-competition agreements have become fixtures in many contracts, including employment contracts, partnership agreements, stock option agreements and more. We are frequently retained by businesses, as well as executives and employees, to handle legal disputes regarding non-competition agreements. The Austin based attorneys at Taylor Dunham and Rodriguez, LLP, understand how important it is that these agreements be enforced in accordance with the law so that the legitimate interests of both the employer and the employee are protected.

The law sets forth specific tests for the enforceability of non-compete agreements. Generally, in order to be enforceable, a non-compete agreement must be reasonable in terms of scope, geography and time. In other words, the non-compete provision may not be overbroad in the type of restrictions on future employment or business activity, must not be unreasonable in the amount of time that a party is prevented from competing and must set forth reasonable geographical restrictions on competition.

We have litigated non-competition agreement claims and defenses through injunction hearings, as well as through jury trials. We have done so on behalf of businesses or partnerships seeking to enforce the non-competition agreement, as well as on behalf of employees and executives who seek relief from overbroad non-compete agreements.
