Houston Attorneys Drafting, Reviewing, Interpreting And Litigating Employment Contracts
Non-compete agreements allow employers to share business secrets with employees without fear that the employees will share those secrets with competitors. Non-compete agreements, however, must be limited in terms of scope and duration. An overly broad non-compete agreement can be monopolistic and difficult to enforce in court.
Whether you are an employer that wants to retain the best talent or an employee who wants to pursue other career opportunities, it's critical to work with an experienced employment lawyer.

Protecting Trade Secrets
We also work with businesses to take appropriate measures to protect against the misappropriation of trade secrets. Our law firm helps businesses protect:

We recognize that many employees must have confidential information to perform their jobs effectively. We also recognize the damage that can result if that information becomes available in the public domain. With years of litigation experience, our lawyers know how to draft non-compete agreements that preserve employers' rights to protect confidential information without violating employees' rights to find future employment opportunities.
Although there are places to buy or download employment contracts, those contracts are not tailored to the specifics of an employer's situation and may not be enforceable in the courtroom. Drafting a non-compete agreement without consulting an experienced Texas attorney can result in contracts that do not protect employers or employees.
