In cases involving the enforcement of non-competition agreements, Crone & McEvoy, plc has considerable experience representing both sides of the dispute.
Whether the scenario is one where an employee is a former owner who signed an agreement as a condition of sale, or the employee simply signed an agreement as a condition of employment, we understand the extensive investigation, discovery and preparation required to defend both the agreement and the individual.
It is that exhaustive front-end process that will often determine success. Based on the investigation or discovery we are able to perform, we can advise a client as to his chances of success at the injunction hearing and develop a strategy to resolve the dispute via settlement, mediation or hearing. Even in those situations where there seems to be a legitimate trade secret to be protected, by performing due diligence we often discover critical facts that undermine the claim that the material should be protected.
