This respected and authoritative three-volume treatise delivers the information practitioners need to analyze, draft, and confidently litigate covenants not to compete and other restrictive covenants in the employment, partnership, franchise, license, and sale-of-business contexts.
Comprehensive in scope, yet easy to use, Covenants Not to Compete provides fingertip access to critical information, whether the user is searching by state, by topic, by questions of first impression, or by issues that have been specifically identified as unresolved by courts. Using a uniform topic structure that provides a comparative view across states, this treatise is invaluable for lawyers with a multi-jurisdictional practice, as well as for those seeking persuasive authority from other states.
Representative cutting-edge questions considered in the Eleventh Edition include: how an overly broad confidentiality agreement has been treated as a noncompetition covenant; the anticipatory repudiation of covenants; the impact of a state statute prohibiting noncompetes for technology employees; the adequacy of continued employment as consideration for execution of an afterthought covenant; the impact of a statute requiring courts to reform overbroad noncompetition covenants; whether more than “sporadic” communication between employees and customers is required for there to be a protectable interest in goodwill; nonrecruitment agreements; whether a “term of years” employment agreement is really an unenforceable restrictive covenant; irreparable harm acknowledgment clauses; pre-employment noncompete agreements; and whether an employer with no knowledge of a noncompetition covenant can be subject to a tortious interference claim.
