Information is a crucial commodity in today’s economy. This means that trade secrets, internal procedures, customer lists, and other such pieces of information should be safeguarded. The problem, however, is that you are giving access to this information whenever you hire an employee, bring on a new vendor, or when you bring in a new business partner. If you fail to take the appropriate steps then these individuals may take your vital information and use it in another business after they are no longer associated with your company. They may even use it to compete against you. Fortunately, there are legal mechanisms which allow you to keep this from happening. By drafting a “non-compete” agreement you can create an obligation, on the part of other parties, which prevent them from using or divulging your company’s important information. It is important that the agreement be properly drafted, that it be enforceable, and that it covers as many different situations as possible. An experienced business law lawyer can assist you with drafting such a document. Holly Meyer is a Long Island lawyer who handles such matters. Contact us today to schedule an initial consultation. We also serve those in Queens, Brooklyn, and other New York areas.
Attorney assisting Long Island area businesses with non-competition contracts
A non-competition contract can be created in multiple ways. First, it may be incorporated in a comprehensive employment contract. Second, it can be completed as a wholly separate document. The agreement can be signed by business partners, independent contractors, employees, or any third-party with access to your important information. The agreement may require that information remain “in-house,” that the parties not take jobs with any of your competitors, that the parties not start competing enterprises, or it may impose limitations upon the extent to which they can compete against you. The type of agreement you need will depend on the specifics of your situation. It must deal with as many different scenarios as possible and must be specific so that a Court does not find it to be vague and unenforceable. Retaining an experienced lawyer can help you to make sure that your documents are properly drafted.
