Restrictive Covenant and Non-Compete Litigation

A Georgia law firm representing employers and employees in restrictive covenant and non-compete litigation

Technology today has made it easier than ever for employees to take competitive information with them when they leave a business venture or place of employment. With restrictive covenants becoming more commonplace in employment contracts, the business attorneys at Williams Teusink understand that restrictive covenant agreements are only useful if they can be enforced. Taking such proactive measures can prevent employees from unfairly competing and using or disclosing confidential information and trade secrets.

When drafting restrictive covenant and non-compete agreements, it is important to narrowly tailor their provisions. Doing so will best ensure that a Georgia court will ultimately find the restrictions enforceable. The term restrictive covenant actually encompasses several varieties, including non-competition, non-solicitation, and non-recruitment.

Restrictive Covenant and Non-Compete Litigation in Atlanta, Georgia

Restrictive covenants are simply not one-state-fits-all. Additionally, since the Georgia Legislature’s 2011 enactment of substantial changes to non-competition law, Georgia courts have only recently begun to interpret how those changes impact businesses and their employees. As such, it pays to have an attorney who knows the issues specific to up-to-date Georgia law to ensure your restrictive covenant is enforceable.
