We represent both employers and employees in actions to enforce covenants not to compete, confidentiality agreements and other lawsuits concerning unfair competition. We also represent employers and employees and in the negotiation of non-competition and confidentiality agreements. Although the statutory provisions concerning non-competition agreements have been in place for more than 20 years, their interpretation by the Texas Supreme Court has shifted rapidly in the last decade, and new decisions by the courts of appeal frequently add important nuances to enforcement of these provisions. We stay abreast of the constantly evolving law with an active litigation docket but also offer the in-depth historical understanding that comes with decades of experience. This understanding also helps us guide our clients in drafting non-competition agreements, which are too often based on “one size fits all” forms that can trigger penalties against the employer under Texas law.
