Non-Compete & Non-Solicitation Agreements
Reach an Experienced Minneapolis Lawyer at (612) 260-5109
You have always been able to compete fairly and succeed. That’s the
game. When someone cheats by poaching a key employee and using her to
sell to all of your customers, that’s unfair. If you have a proper
non-compete and non-solicitation agreement in place with your employees,
you may be able to sue and stop this from happening, or at least, hold
those responsible for breaking and interfering with your non-compete agreements.
Once the damage starts, it only multiples—usually exponentially.
We can aggressively, effectively, and efficiently fight for your rights
and protect your business from potentially devastating harm when a non-compete
or non-solicitation agreement is broken. You must act fast when faced
with a violated non-compete agreement. After the bell has been rung by
a former worker helping your competitor steal your customers, the bell
cannot be unrung completely. But you can act quickly to silence it and
limit the damage that is being done.
Discuss how your non-compete agreement was violated. Give

Non-Compete Agreements and Business Sales
It is one thing if your non-compete agreement is with an employee, but
Minnesota Courts analyze these agreements with a different legal standard
than if they are part of an agreement that involved the sale or purchase
of a business. Make sure you know the difference. Make sure you apply
the proper standard when suing over your non-compete agreement, negotiating
the terms of one or trying to decide how enforceable it will be in the future.
Non-compete agreements: When employers share ideas and business practices with employees, partners
and others, a non-compete agreement helps make sure that these people
do not impact the employer's bottom line by working for the competition.
By law, non-compete agreements must be limited in scope, duration and
geography in order to be enforceable.
Non-solicitation agreements: Customers and employees are a business's biggest assets. Non-solicitation
agreements limit the contact that a former employee can have with a business's
existing customers and employees. When an employee signs a non-solicitation
agreement, he or she agrees not to take valuable customers or other employees
along when leaving the business.
