Overcoming, Upholding Or Modifying Covenants Not To Compete

The Firm has advised individuals seeking to switch companies or start their own on whether they will be in direct competition with their current employer or otherwise in breach of their noncompete clause. Block & Roos, LLP, also counsel employers on whether their restrictive covenant is enforceable and helps them weigh the pros and cons of fighting the case.
