We represent both employers and executive employees in preparing employment agreements and incentive compensation plans. For employers, we routinely prepare many types of ancillary agreements designed to minimize the risk of employment claims, such as arbitration, "at-will," and "consensual relationship" agreements.
The ability of employers to protect their proprietary and confidential information (including trade secrets), their customer base, and their valuable employees from "raiding" by employees who have left their employment can be critical in today's competitive business environment. We prepare confidentiality, non-disclosure, and non-solicitation agreements to help employers contractually protect their valuable business assets, customer relationships, and employees. We also prepare "non-compete" agreements and we are experienced in the enforceability of such agreements in California and throughout the United States.
