Restrictive Covenants

Many of today's employees enjoy a kind of "free agency" status, enabling them to change jobs - sometimes abruptly. When a departing employee has knowledge of the employer's trade secrets or other sensitive, confidential information, or has significant customer contacts, the employer - not surprisingly - wants to guard against the damage that the departing employee may be able to inflict. Restrictive covenants, including noncompetition, nonsolicitation and nondisclosure, can serve as contractual barriers against this potential damage.

Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie lawyers have in-depth experience with the law pertaining to restrictive covenants, as well as the litigation procedures, including temporary restraining orders and preliminary injunctions, for the enforcement of such covenants. We have represented both employers and employees involved in such litigation.

In addition, Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie has frequently been called upon to advise clients in assessing the enforceability of restrictive covenants and to assist in the preparation and negotiation of contracts containing such covenants.
