As a business owner, protecting your business’ confidential and proprietary information is essential for ongoing health, security and growth. When employees and staff leave an employer, sometimes they take certain confidential and proprietary information such as client lists and vendors lists, either unknowingly, or because they want access to the information for their own use, sometimes even to start a competing business. By having an experienced attorney draft confidentiality and non-solicitation agreements, a business can do its due diligence and protect itself from the misappropriation of its confidential and proprietary information.
As an employee, there are times when an employer requires you to sign various employment agreements, such as confidentiality, non-solicitation, and non-complete agreements. These agreements can be overwhelming not just by the legalise, but they can often be overbroad and even unenforceable under the law. An experienced attorney can assist reviewing such documents and negotiating fair and reasonable terms.
