Noncompetition, Corporate Raiding & Trade Secrets Litigation
Employment Law Group lawyers have extensive experience in litigating corporate raiding, noncompetition and misappropriation of trade secrets cases. They have handled many “save the company” cases, where key employees have departed as a group with the goal of stepping into the shoes of their former employer. These cases require experienced counsel, immediate and decisive action, and a working knowledge of effective techniques that can restore leverage and prevent further harm.
Clients call the Employment Law Group when they need a second opinion, or when they feel uncomfortable about a termination or other decision. Group lawyers can spot red flags and make sure that documentation is in order and the case will be as bulletproof as possible should the employee take legal action.
Group lawyers can help you investigate harassment, retaliation and other employee complaints. A good investigation and proper documentation is your insurance policy in the event of a lawsuit.
Employment Manuals, Contracts & Policies
Employment Law Group lawyers develop policies that comply with the law while still allowing clients to effectively manage their workforce. They develop noncompetition agreements for key employees, and aggressively enforce those agreements in court.
