LITIGATION OVER NONCOMPETES IS ON THE RISE
I just ran across an article in a Dun & Bradstreet publication entitled, All Business. The article speaks to the increase in lawsuits over the legality and enforceability of noncompete agreements.
As you would expect, the article is written mostly from the employer’s viewpoint. However, our experience is that courts in Virginia are becoming less and less willing to enforce noncompete and nonsolicitation agreements which unfairly prohibit an individual from earning a living.
