nONCOMPETES & TRADE SECRETS
Fair competition is a foundation of our economy. Noncompete agreements and trade secret protections are recognized tools for helping companies keep their competitive edge.
Businesses use noncompete agreements to protect assets such as confidential information, customer relationships, and investment in training. On the other hand, noncompete agreements are frequently overbroad, oppressive, and unenforceable as written. Because courts scrutinize noncompetes more closely than other agreements, it is important to choose an attorney versed in the nuances of noncompete law. With experience representing both companies and employees, Maxwell Goss drafts and negotiates noncompete agreements and helps businesses and individuals resolve their noncompete disputes.
Trade secrets are high-value assets, and nearly every business has them. Trade secrets tend to come in two varieties: Business information (for example, customer information or financial data) and technical information (for example, product formulas or design specifications). When an employee, partner, vendor, or hacker steals or misuses trade secrets, a business must take decisive action. With a rare combination of experience in both business post-employment litigation and technical intellectual property litigation, Maxwell Goss is equipped to handle any trade secret matters that may arise.
