Non-Compete Law

Time is of the Essence in Business Litigation Cases

We represent businesses and employees, including doctors, investment advisors, and other professionals throughout Virginia, in matters involving misappropriation of trade secrets, computer fraud, social media, employment disputes, and unfair business practices.

Our attorneys have experience resolving disputes arising from non-compete, non-solicitation, and non-disclosure provisions in employment agreements. We have helped clients in cases under the Uniform Trade Secrets Act, Stored Communications Act, Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, and related state and federal laws in business competition litigation.

Virginia Non-Compete Agreements

If you are an employee who needs assistance with a non-compete matter, we can gather each of the documents necessary to review your non-compete contract and provide you with advice and counsel on your employment transition.

Our review includes a summary of Virginia non-compete laws, strategies for negotiation, potential resolutions, and if necessary, litigation remedies such as declaratory judgment or defense in a lawsuit seeking to enforce the non-compete agreement.

If an employer claims you violated your contract, you must move quickly. We will plan your exit strategy, including maximizing your book of business and maintaining business relationships in your industry. Our goal is often to avoid litigation, which can be costly, but more importantly to protect your reputation.

We are ready to bring an action or defend you in state and federal court against breach of contract, tortious interference with contract, breach of a non-compete agreement, fraud, defamation, conspiracy, Virginia Computer Crimes Act, professional misconduct, breach of fiduciary duties, and misappropriation of trade secrets.
