non-competition and other restrictive covenants

SLG understands the importance of protecting trade secrets and preventing theft of proprietary information. Accordingly, we assist businesses in the formulation of effective and enforceable confidentiality, non-competition and non-solicitation agreements; we create internal employment policies necessary to protect a company’s confidential and proprietary information; and we provide advice and counsel on the implementation and enforcement of restrictive covenants (e.g., non-competition, non-solicitation).
