Noncompete Agreements

Illinois Lawyers Provide Knowledgeable Advice on Employee Noncompete Agreements

Naperville attorneys help parties clarify rights and restrictions when a job ends

To protect their business interests, companies often require employees to sign documents agreeing not to work for a competing firm. This is clearly appropriate during the term of employment, but when these covenants extend beyond the employee’s departure, strict rules can apply. At Law Offices of Mark J. Baiocchi, we provide authoritative legal advice to workers and employers regarding the creation, negotiation and enforcement of noncompete agreements. Our lawyers can give you a clear understanding of how far these restrictions can go or if they are even permissible at all.

Firm delivers comprehensive counsel on Illinois laws concerning noncompete covenants

States take different approaches to noncompete agreements, so it is important that you get personalized advice. For employers, our Naperville attorneys will draft a document that comports with all regulations. If you are a current or departing employee, we can analyze an agreement that has been given to you so that you can know what terms, if any, are enforceable. Particular terms at issue can include:

  • Defining what types of businesses can be considered as competitive
  • Establishing a geographic area within which firms might be affected by the agreement
  • How long restrictions can remain in effect
  • Consideration you will receive for executing a noncompete agreement
  • Provisions relating to proprietary information
  • Limits on working with former customers or clients after moving to a new job

Even if an agreement has been previously executed, the terms might not be valid according to state law. We can evaluate existing covenants and inform you of your legal rights.

Dedicated advocates handle negotiations and enforcement disputes

Whether they occur at the beginning of someone’s employment or the end, conversations about noncompete agreements can be difficult. Our attorneys protect our clients’ rights by representing them during negotiations and enforcement proceedings. p>
