Kansas City Employment Lawyer For Noncompete & Nonsolicitation Agreements
LG Law advises employees and employers regarding their respective obligations under noncompete or nonsolicitation contracts. Whether you are seeking to assert or overcome such an agreement, enforceability will depend on the reasonableness of the agreement’s duration and scope. A noncompete or nonsolicitation agreement is typically not reasonable and therefore not enforceable if the agreement imposes an undue burden on an employee seeking to earn a living in the profession of their choosing, or if the agreement over-reaches appropriate geographical boundaries.
At LG Law, we review the terms of these agreements in an effort to identify clauses and conditions that are either unenforceable or outside the interests of our clients.
Our founding attorney, Lewis Galloway, has extensive experience with regard to noncompete and nonsolicitation contracts. For a free consultation, please call us in Kansas City at 816-897-7795 or complete our contact form. We advise and represent clients in Missouri and Kansas.
Understanding The Enforceability Of Noncompete Agreements
When initiating enforcement proceedings, employers must meet their obligations under a noncompete or nonsolicitation agreement’s terms, as well as demonstrate a legitimate business reason to limit the manner in which their former employee can do business. Such legitimate business interests may include:
- Protecting trade secrets
- Maintaining valuable confidential business or professional information
- Preserving relationships with specific prospective or existing customers, patients or clients
- Defending goodwill associated with an ongoing business or professional practice, by way of a trademark, geographic location or marketing/trade area
If, as an employee or employer, you have questions or concerns about these matters, do not hesitate to contact us. We have successfully obtained injunctive relief to enforce or to prohibit the enforcement of noncompetition and nonsolicitation covenants in courts throughout the country.
