Non-Compete Agreements & Restrictive Covenants Attorneys in Clearwater

Protecting the Interests of Employees & Employers in Tampa Bay

Restrictive covenants, or non-compete agreements, are contracts that can protect an employer’s business interests by limiting where a former employee can work or what they can reveal about the employer in the future. Conversely, these contracts can unfairly limit an employee’s ability to find work and litigating them may be necessary to seek an agreeable resolution.

Our attorneys at Kwall Barack Nadeau PLLC devote much of our employment law practice toward litigating for employees and employers alike regarding restrictive covenants. You may be concerned about employees sharing trade secrets with your competition, or you may be an employee who feels unfairly restricted in your ability to find an equivalent position.

Whether you’re trying to protect your business or your livelihood, it is important to have an attorney review the agreement before you sign a restrictive covenant. If you have already signed one and need to understand your options, our attorneys can help you. Getting help from a qualified non-compete and restrictive covenants attorney in Clearwater can help you seek a resolution favorable to your interests.

Examples of Restrictive Covenants

Restrictive covenants can be the following and more:

  • Non-compete agreements: These can limit someone’s ability to work in the same business space as their former employer. This can severely affect employees with limited transferrable skills. Click here to view Florida's laws governing non-compete agreements.
  • Non-disclosure and confidentiality agreements: These can protect valuable trade information including proprietary products and methods, as well as pricing and cost information.
  • Non-solicitation agreements: These can limit an ex-employee’s ability to take a former employer's clients, work directly for a former employer's client or vendor, and/or recruit former co-workers.
  • Work-for-hire agreements: These agreements can limit a contractor’s ownership over something produced for an employer. These can be computer codes, works of art, web designs, and more.

This is not an exhaustive list of the legal options you can use or may face in a contract. If you are seeking to protect your interests as a business owner or employee, reach out to Kwall Barack Nadeau PLLC for a review of your employment agreement.
