Employment Covenants & Employment Issues
Employment covenants have engendered their own, specialized area of the law that requires attorneys to be up-to-date and focused on details. The firm has represented both plaintiffs and defendants with respect to employment covenants and knows the law concerning trade secrets, customer contacts, and employee solicitation on which covenants rise or fall. In addition, firm attorneys are knowledgeable concerning the various claims that often attend employee covenants, such as civil conspiracy and tortious interference claims and claims based on the Missouri Uniform Trade Secrets Act.
