If you have been presented with a non-compete agreement by your employer, it is important that you have an attorney review the agreement with you before you sign. If necessary, changes may need to be negotiated to the agreement. At the very least, you should fully understand the impact on your future career of a non-compete agreement. If you have already signed a non-compete agreement and are thinking about leaving your current employment, our lawyers can assist you with understanding the restrictions that the agreement may impose on you and can discuss with you the possibilty of raising a legal challenge to the agreement. Violation of a non-compete agreement may expose you to significant liability including, in some cases, significant monetary damages. Accordingly, it is important that you understand what steps to take to avoid violating the agreement.
Our ExperienceVirginia law on the enforceability of non-compete agreements is complex. Our lead employment attorney, John Davidson, is, in addition to having 20 years of experience advising clients on non-compete agreements, an employment law professor at the University of Virginia School of Law. He can put his deep understanding of the law to work for you.
