Non-Compete Clauses and Restrictive Covenants
Litigation of Employee Agreements in Georgia
Employee agreements are meant to protect trade secrets and protect employers from losing clients and key talent to competitors. When an ex-employee circumvents the agreement, the business may suffer tangible and lasting harm. When the document is overly restrictive or ruthlessly enforced, former employees can be frozen out of meaningful work in their field.
The employment law attorneys of Feldman Morgado, P.A., regularly handle employment agreement disputes. We have represented both employers and employees in negotiation, dispute resolution or litigation of restrictive covenants. In or out of court, we will vigorously assert your interests and your legal recourse.
