Careful analysis and planning is the most important part of creating effective and enforceable restrictive covenants. At BurnsBarton we take the time to understand our clients’ business and identify their trade secrets and confidential information. This understanding helps us draft tailored restrictive covenants that protect what is protectable while remaining narrow enough to be enforceable.
An enforceable restrictive covenant is only part of the equation. There are many things companies can do to prevent or limit theft of confidential information that don’t require an agreement. We help our clients implement policies and practices that protect information even in the absence of an enforceable restrictive covenant.
Despite all this, there are some employees who will nevertheless attempt to steal clients, employees and confidential information. When that happens, we have the experience necessary to get into court and make them stop.
