When you start a new job, you may be required to sign a non-compete agreement by your new employer. These agreements are designed to protect the best interests of your employer by preventing you from exploiting the confidential information or trade secrets you acquired if you ever go to work for one of their competitors. However, in some cases non-compete agreements may actually inhibit your ability to seek employment and earn a living. If you feel as though you may be unfairly restricted by a non-compete agreement, it is important to seek assistance from a skilled New Canaan employment lawyer.

Is Your Non-Compete Clause Legitimate?
Non-compete agreements are often thrown out by courts because many of them are drafted in ways that are unreasonably restrictive. It is important to have your non-compete agreement reviewed by an experienced attorney.
Generally, a valid non-compete agreement will:
- Protect a reasonable and legitimate business interest of your employer.
- Be supported by consideration at the time of signing.
- Have reasonable restrictions on time, geography, and scope of coverage.
Attorney Brickley will review your non-compete agreement and advise you as to its enforceability.
