Noncompete agreements are a key business strategy used to protect Minnesota employers when an employee leaves the company. Designed to prevent employees from working in direct competition with their former employers, noncompete agreements are subject to legal requirements that have been extensively litigated.
At Minenko & Hoff, P.A., we use in-depth legal knowledge to analyze and effectively resolve claims related to noncompete agreements. Each case is different. Often, cases turn on the facts — when a noncompete was signed, what the terms are, and what was given in exchange for the promise not to compete.
Noncompetes signed in exchange for employment are often enforceable, for example, while noncompetes signed after an employee had started employment may be unenforceable. To understand how the law may apply in your situation, it is best to speak confidentially with Minneapolis noncompete agreement attorney Mike Minenko.
Protecting Trade Secrets
Confidential information is often the foundation of business. Without properly protected trade secrets, businesses would not have leverage in the marketplace and would be unable to thrive. At Minenko & Hoff, P.A., Minneapolis/St. Paul attorney Mike Minenko counsels employers and employees regarding the protection of confidential business information, including trade secrets.
We draft, review and litigate employment agreements containing trade secret provisions, both bringing and defending claims of misappropriation of trade secrets. Serving plaintiffs and defendants in trade secret cases, we are dedicated to protecting our clients’ best interests.
