Business Attorney for Employment Contract Writing and Disputes in Algonquin and Crystal Lake

With today's highly transient workforce, it is difficult for businesses to protect confidential information. To address this issue, organizations are increasingly inserting restrictive covenants such as non-competition and non-solicitation agreements into contracts with employees and subcontractors. Such clauses are designed to prevent employees, subcontractors, and other individuals with access to sensitive information from engaging in behavior that might be damaging to the organization. Enforcing a restrictive covenant against a former associate can be challenging, however, and it is important to work with skilled commercial litigation attorneys that have particular experience in this area of the law.

At Owens Law, LLC, we have several decades of commercial and securities litigation experience in the Chicago area and throughout Illinois. Our attorney has an in-depth knowledge of restrictive covenants, non-solicitation, and non-compete agreements, the common issues addressed with these clauses, and what it takes to ensure your interests are fully protected. Over the years, we have handled countless contract dispute cases involving these issues, and we put our extensive experience to work to develop innovative and practical solutions that put our clients in the best possible position for a favorable outcome.

Is Your Restrictive Covenant Enforceable?

Restrictive covenants including non-solicitation, non-compete, and confidentiality agreements, are put in place by organizations to protect business interests such as client lists, trade secrets, and other sensitive information from damaging exposure. However, many of these clauses are vaguely worded, overly broad, or overly restrictive.

In such cases, these contracts may be deemed unenforceable by an Illinois court if and when they are ever challenged. For this reason, it is essential to have an experienced attorney involved in the drafting and review of your restrictive covenant to ensure it will be upheld in the event of contract litigation.
