Restrictive Covenants

Restrictive covenants, such as non-competition, non-solicitation, and non-disclosure agreements, can be vital tools for safeguarding an organization’s intellectual property, intellectual capital, and trade secrets—its competitive advantage in the marketplace. Pioneering startups want and need to protect proprietary innovations and developments. And established companies want and need to retain key talent, protect their customer base, and shield confidential and competitively-sensitive corporate information. At Lockaby PLLC, our attorneys understand the intricate legal, economic, and market dynamics at play, and we meticulously analyze applicable regulations, industry standards, and individual circumstances to craft effective and enforceable covenants designed to protect legitimate business interests.

Our attorneys have experience representing clients in a wide variety of industries, including automotive, banking, construction, food service, healthcare, insurance, manufacturing, professional services, and retail, and we understand the nuances these heavily-scrutinized covenants demand. We have also handled numerous covenant-enforcement actions in state courts, federal courts, and arbitrations across the country—including in Kentucky, New York, and Florida.

Whether an organization is seeking to draft an ironclad agreement or litigate a contentious dispute, we stand ready to provide the strategic guidance and zealous advocacy needed to succeed.
