Before you sign or enter into a contract, agreement, or covenant, it’s critical to vet the agreement. Employees have fallen victim to predatory documents in the past, but you can protect yourself from harsh terms with the help of an experienced New York employment contract attorney.

When representing our clients in such matters, our objective is singular: obtaining for each of our clients the benefit of the legally enforceable bargain they struck.

Non-Compete and Non-Solicit Provisions

Protecting your best interests is a top concern when dealing with job termination. You need a legal team with experience in contracts to protect your post-employment welfare.

This specialty includes employment contracts, partnership agreements, non-compete agreements, and non-solicit agreements.

We offer extensive experience helping clients navigate and negotiate these arrangements when they enter or depart from them.

Our practice has litigated breaches in various industries and contexts, whether our client is accused of committing a breach or if an employer threatens or perpetuates a contractual relationship against our client.

Restrictive Covenants

An employment contract may tie an employee to certain restrictions during their employment or following their separation from a company or organization. These contractual relationships might include stipulations regarding non-competition or non-solicitation.

For example, after leaving an employer, the party may not be able to apply with or work for a competing company in the same industry for a set time.

Such restrictive covenants can be challenged in most jurisdictions if they are too broad in scope or duration, thereby depriving employees of the ability to earn a livelihood.

Often, such overly restrictive covenants or non-compete agreements can be rendered totally or partially unenforceable by convincing courts to “blue-pencil” (i.e., rewrite) the covenant or agreement.

As legal experts in restrictive covenants, we obtain our clients the benefit of a legally enforceable bargain, whether their employer accuses them of a breach or threatens them with their contractual relationship.
