Enforceability of Non-Compete Agreements

Law Office of David M. Goldman represents individuals  located in Jacksonville, Florida and areas including Duval, St. Johns, Ponte Vedra Beach, with issues relating to non-compete agreements.

We help individuals evaluate the enforceability of their Florida non-compete agreements.

In addition, we evaluate the enforceability of individual non-compete agreements with their employers to see if they are valid under Florida Law.  This analysis often involves looking at how a court would likely to view the agreement if it is challenged.

Jacksonville and Florida based Non-compete agreements must be analyzed as of the date they were entered into. There are separate rules based upon the date they were executed.   We evaluate Florida non-compete agreements that were entered into prior to June 28, 1990, from June 28-1990 until June 28, 1996, and those entered into on or after July 1, 1996.

Most recent Florida Non-Compete Agreements are evaluated on the reasonableness as to time, geographic area, and business area to be restricted.   Even if the agreement appears to be unreasonable a court may reduce the restrictions through a process called blue lining. It is important to deal with trade secrets, valuable confidential business or professional information, substantial relationships with specific prospective or existing clients, customers, and their goodwill associated with ongoing business, trade names, trade marks, geographic location as well as any extraordinary specialized training.

If you are trying to protect yourself and know what your rights are in a relationship with an employment agreement you are a part of please call us for an evaluation at (904) 685-1200 or contact a Jacksonville Non-Compete Lawyer online.

We will prepare a non compete agreement for your firm for $1500 (including 1 hour of customization) and review your non compete agreement for $750 including up to 1 hour of time with you to explain the options and risks.
