In Texas, an employer can contract with an employee to prevent the employee from competing with the employer after the parties end their relationship. These contracts are called non-compete agreements or covenants not to compete.
Given the serious obligations imposed by most non-compete agreements and the potential for huge business losses if a court rules that a non-compete agreement is unenforceable, a party should reach out to experienced Texas employment counsel both when negotiating a new non-compete agreement and when dealing with issues involving an existing non-compete agreement.
Keith Clouse, a Dallas, Texas non-compete lawyer who negotiates non-compete agreements and litigates disputes over them, notes that Texas courts frequently release new opinions that impact non-compete matters. An employment law specialist who stays current on these legal developments can ensure that a new non-compete agreement complies with legal requirements and can help a party resolve a non-compete dispute in the speediest and most cost-effective way.
To speak to Mr. Clouse or to another employment law attorney about negotiating a non-compete agreement or about litigating a dispute over a covenant not to compete, contact the Dallas, Texas employment lawyers at Clouse Dunn Khoshbin LLP at [email protected].
