Surprisingly, it’s not something every company thinks about until it’s too late: When an employee departs, what will they take with them? Your customer database? Your proprietary designs and processes?
Don’t wait until you suspect that they might be leaving. Connect with the attorneys of DiMonte & Lizak to prepare the kind of trade secrecy policies and agreements, restrictive covenants and non-compete agreements that keep your most precious secrets legally protected. In drafting non-compete agreements, we can work closely with you to ascertain your goals and provide guidance on how restrictive and enforceable the agreement should be to suit your purposes.
Our attorneys also provide much-needed counsel to departing employees preparing to start a business, advising them on what is and is not allowed to be shared in the marketplace under the law and per their employment agreement.
