When a key executive or employee leaves an organization to start or join a competitor, attorneys at Berman Fink Van Horn help business owners protect their business interests. Proactive measures, such as non-compete agreements, can prevent employees from unfairly competing and using or disclosing confidential information and trade secrets.
Today, technology, including mobile devices, has made it even easier for employees to take competitive information with them when they leave an organization and more challenging for companies to prevent trade secret theft. A significant federal law, the Defend Trade Secrets Act, is another tool that companies can use against employees who misappropriate information.
At Berman Fink Van Horn, we have extensive experience litigating non-compete and other unfair competition-related disputes for growing companies of all sizes - from public companies to startups. We represent organizations and individuals in all types of disputes involving restrictive covenants, trade secrets and other competition-related litigation. Our lawyers are adept at enforcing these agreements in court. We also help clients who wish to hire employees that are subject to such agreements manage the risks.
