A non-disclosure agreement, also known as a confidentiality agreement, is a legal contract or agreement between parties (individuals or businesses) to protect one’s proprietary and confidential information. The non-disclosure agreement limits one’s ability to disclose of such confidential information to third parties.
Non-compete agreements are part of employment contracts or business arrangements intended to protect the party against employees or partners from leaving and taking with them a number of customers or significant industry intelligence.
As non-compete agreements become more common, the courts heavily scrutinize the validity and enforceability of these agreements. Therefore, when faced with the need of a well-drafted a non-compete agreement, you should feel comfortable that your attorneys have the knowledge of the applicable rules and regulations as well as of the current court practices.
