There is a fine line in the law between the legitimate interest of business owners to protect the welfare of their business and the rights of employees and competitors to earn a living. Non-competition agreements and NDAs straddle that line, so it’s important that any agreements be as legally sound as possible. You can protect yourself from disputes and unfair terms by choosing to have your agreements drafted and/or reviewed by the experienced lawyers at McQuarrie.
Our experienced lawyers can develop NDAs for nearly any legal arrangement, including non-competition agreements between businesses and no-compete clauses for more comprehensive employment agreements. We’re also happy to consult with you on laws and NDA guidelines to ensure that you understand everything you’re drafting or signing.
Please contact McQuarrie to learn more or to arrange your private consultation with a lawyer.
Drafting Non-Compete & NDA Templates
We can draft agreements for any business relationships, but it’s not necessary to go to the expense of drafting a new agreement for every situation. In many cases, we can use existing NDA templates to draft agreements that meet your needs quickly. If your corporate business or sole proprietorship uses a standardized form for these agreements, we can add unique ‘no-compete’ clauses in a way that is consistent with employment guidelines and laws. We can also modify NDAs to fit your circumstances, with respect to your field, role and project.
Non-Competition Agreements between Businesses
Non-competition agreements between businesses are particularly complex, and can have major implications for your ability to keep your business or service profitable. Do not take the risk of locking yourself out of the market by signing an agreement that isn’t in your best interest. Our lawyers have the experience to develop and modify these arrangements so that your ability to expand in the future is not unreasonably constrained.
Make sure you speak to a lawyer before you sign any kind of employment agreement. These agreements are becoming more common than they were in the past, and so are clauses that could play a major role in your career. An unfair deal can make it difficult to work in your field or city of choice, so it needs to be considered carefully. Our lawyers can help you understand all the terms of any agreement.
