Albany Non-Compete Agreement Lawyers

Restrictive Covenants and Employment Disputes

Enforcing Employment Contracts in Upstate New York

The purpose of a non-compete agreement is to protect trade secrets and competitive edge. When a former employee breaches or challenges such an agreement, the Law Offices of Hacker Murphy, LLP, can step in to enforce your interests.

From offices in Albany, our business litigation team serves a range of clients in the Capital District and Upstate New York, from small businesses to sizeable corporations. In state and federal courts, we have upheld non-competes and other restrictive covenants. We have also defended companies against claims of wrongful termination or employment discrimination.

Upstate New York Employment Attorneys
Breach of Non-Competition Agreements

Our accomplished trial lawyers are knowledgeable about contract law and New York state employment law and judicial precedent as it applies to the language and limits of restrictive covenants.

We can initiate actions for injunctive relief or damages for breach of employment contracts, including violations of non-competition agreements and non-disclosure agreements. We regularly defend employers when ex-employees sue to break the agreement, arguing that the non-compete clause is too broad or too ambiguous to be enforced.

If the legal issues and the parties are amenable to mediation or arbitration, our firm has a record of favorable results in alternative dispute resolution. But we are prepared to go to court to protect businesses from being raided by the competition or compromised by former employees.
