Addressing Noncompete Disputes In Texas And Nationwide

The best way to prevent litigation over a noncompete agreement is to ensure that the original contract is enforceable and clear. As part of our comprehensive business services, our experienced attorneys help business owners and directors draft and review strong contracts that minimize the risk of litigation down the road.

We also help employees and executives who are bound by noncompete agreements explore new ventures under the terms of those agreements, litigating overly restrictive contracts when necessary.
