Non-Compete And Non-Solicit

These are very powerful contracts that are normally written by employers to protect trade secrets, methods and practices. We have experience on both sides of these special contracts. These contracts must be drafted very carefully and in accordance with North Carolina law. Typically, Courts look at the duration, location and subject matter. Sometimes these agreements can be very unfair and can cause severe hardship to both sides if not prepared correctly.

As the names indicate, Non-Compete deals with an employee's ability to work in the same field. Whereas Non-Solicit prohibits an employee from contacting clients.

The Courts frown on these types of contracts and are very strict in ensuring legal compliance and often times look for ways not to enforce them if they are not fair.
