Legal Help When Noncompete And Confidentiality Agreements Are Breached
Contracts serve as the foundation for business relationships. When a breach of contract occurs, it can put the business in jeopardy — or at least expose it to the risk of significant financial loss. At Beik Law Firm, PLLC, in Houston, we represent sole proprietors, partners, small businesses and privately held corporations in a wide range of business litigation in Texas state and federal courts. Much of our work focuses on protecting our clients from breach of noncompete, nondisclosure and confidentiality agreements.
In many industries — especially in highly competitive markets — it is common for businesses to ask employees to sign noncompete agreements as a condition of employment. In exchange for employment, the employee agrees not to work for competing employers in a set geographic area for a set time period.
Unfortunately, it is also fairly common for employees to breach noncompete agreements. Many leave current employers for jobs with competing businesses, gambling that the current employer will not enforce the agreement. In doing so, they can have a substantial negative impact on the businesses they leave.
At Beik Law Firm, PLLC, we help business leaders take action when a noncompete agreement has been breached. Our focus is on taking effective action to protect our clients’ business interests from unfair actions by former employees. Through quick, smart and strategic action, we seek to minimize the damage to your business.
Confidentiality agreements (also called nondisclosure agreements or NDAs) allow businesses to share key business information with employees and other collaborators, including independent contractors and suppliers, while remaining protected. In exchange for compensation, these parties agree to secrecy. They promise not to disclose trade secrets or other sensitive information to others without proper authorization.
When a party breaches this agreement, the impact can be immediate and significant. At Beik Law Firm, PLLC, we use extensive experience and in-depth knowledge of the law to mitigate the losses to your business. Our focus is on strategic action that protects your interests.
