Pennsylvania Non-Compete Lawyer Serving Coatesville, Pottstown, Norristown, East Norriton, Malvern, Paoli, Downingtown, Media, Radnor, Newtown Square and Philadelphia Areas

The Gallagher Law Group represents individuals who are fenced in by an overly restrictive non-compete agreement, and advises clients who are asked to sign any restrictive covenant upon (or after) employment.

Our employment law attorneys have substantial experience in evaluating non-compete clauses and other provisions of an employment contract to determine where our clients stand and what remedies they may have.

We have counseled salespersons, executives and managers, highly skilled workers and professionals in Chester County, Montgomery County and southeastern Pennsylvania. Contact us to arrange a consultation.

Remedies for an Existing Non-Compete Agreement

Non-compete agreements are typically used by employers to prevent key employees from going over to the competition, as well as an exodus of clients and trade secrets with that employee. The contracts limit the ability of the employee to pursue comparable jobs in the same field after the employment relationship has been terminated.
The most common provisions are non-solicitation clauses limiting the employee's right to call on specific customers and non-compete clauses limiting the employee's right to work for certain companies. They commonly restrict the employee for a specified period of one to several years.

If you are under a non-compete agreement that has effectively rendered you unable to find work in your chosen field, we can help. After clients have been separated from the company, the Gallagher Law Group has been successful in minimizing the impact of a non-compete or non-solicitation clause by convincing the employer that the agreement is partially or wholly unenforceable, or that enforcement is not in the employer's best interest.

Prior to Signing a Non-Compete

A non-compete agreement can be particularly devastating to salespersons, licensed professionals or employees with prized skills. Our lawyers can review a suggested contract and advise on how to negotiate a fair non-competition/non-solicitation agreement as a condition of employment. For example, it may be wise to carve out certain clients with whom you have an existing relationship. You should also be leery of excessive duration or overly broad definitions of who is a competing employer.

For reliable counsel of an experienced employment lawyer about your options relating to non compete agreements, contact the Gallagher Law Group in Paoli or in any of our other five locations.
