Fair And Unfair Noncompete Agreements

There is a myth that noncompete agreements are not enforceable. That is untrue, which is why it is important to consult an attorney prior to entering into one or when one has allegedly been violated. At Mowery Youell & Galeano, Ltd., we bring more than 30 years of experience to all matters pertaining to noncompete agreements.

Review And Negotiation Of Noncompete Agreements

When our Dublin, Ohio, noncompete agreement lawyers conduct a review, the focus is on three primary factors: geographic scope, time duration and business functions. The extent to which these factors are used can vary dramatically from one agreement to the next. We want to make certain that the provisions in the agreement are satisfactory to you and that you understand your rights and the restrictions you will have to adhere to.

These factors may be negotiable, and we have extensive experience negotiating them. Perhaps the proposed geographic scope is too vast or the time duration is too long. Perhaps the restricted business functions are far more inclusive than they should be. We will strive to have the provisions altered to meet your needs and ensure that you do not face career-stifling restrictions if you decide to move on in the future.

Violations Of Noncompete Agreements

In the event of a noncompete agreement violation, a business will likely move quickly to have a former employee removed from his or her current position, the position that is allegedly in violation of the agreement. When you contact us, we will take immediate action to effectively protect your current position. Through negotiation or trial, our goal is to make certain that your career is not jeopardized by a former employer’s liberal interpretation of an agreement.
