Non-Compete Clauses

Is Your Non-Compete Clause Legitimate?

Non-compete clauses are often disapproved by courts because many of them are drafted in ways that are unreasonably restrictive. Therefore it is important when you find yourself running into trouble or facing a lawsuit due to a previously signed non-compete agreement, it is important to have your case reviewed by an experienced attorney.

  • A valid non-compete agreement will be:
  • 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


A skilled attorney will be able to analyze your non-compete agreement and compare it to the restrictions your company has placed on you in order to determine the legitimacy of their claim. If the clause is unreasonable, Attorney Brickley can work to clear you of your case and get you back to working and earning income.
