Restrictive Covenants

Employment contracts are typically drafted by the employer to include certain restrictive covenants that safeguard trade secrets and protect its business from any damage that could be caused by a former employee after employment ends. Employers draft these contracts in their own favor and usually fail to consider the rights of employees.

Non-compete and confidentiality agreements prevent employees from performing certain work or revealing methods or skills after employment has ended. Parties usually enter into non-compete agreements or nondisclosure agreements at the beginning of the employment relationship.

While employers have the right to protect the success of their business, employees have the right to move on and advance in their careers. This can lead to various conflicts involving agreements not to compete, trade secret protections, and other restrictive covenants.

Non-compete Agreements

A non-compete agreement may prevent an employee from working in a certain job, for a specific competitor, or in a particular industry for a period of time after employment ends.  In this economy, particularly for employees with a specific set of skills, this can limit job opportunities and have a devastating effect on an individual’s ability to work.

Non-competition agreements are disfavored by North Carolina courts and must be limited in scope, time, and geographic area.  The attorneys at GMFM can review non-compete agreement and seek to protect your ability to earn a living.  We can also challenge overly broad non-compete agreements that unfairly limit an employee’s ability to work.

Confidentiality Agreements

A confidentiality agreement protects trade secrets and other secrets of business operation from disclosure.  These nondisclosure agreements protect employer from harmful disclosures by employees and former employees.  The attorneys at GMFM can help you avoid costly mistakes and assist you in asserting your rights in a confidentiality agreement dispute.

Client Testimonials

“I very much enjoyed meeting and working with Bill Mills on a fairly difficult and complicated matter. He showed a tremendous amount of sensitivity, understanding, compassion and patience during the times that we really needed it. Bill was very knowledgeable, confident, and resourceful. He was also extremely thorough, open, honest, and persistent in his efforts. Bill did not leave any stone unturned which made it possible for us to have a successful outcome. I highly recommend using Bill Mills and his firm.”

- Robert James

“Bill Mills is a fantastic trial attorney and the consummate professional. He is a tireless advocate, always well prepared, and genuinely cares about each and every client. I have had the privilege to co-counsel with Bill on two major cases, both of which resulted in excellent recoveries for our clients. Bill is a delightful person and a  pleasure to work with. I look forward to our next case together.”

- Irv Cantor, Attorney in Richmond, Va.

“I came to Glenn, Mills, Fisher, and Mahoney with an extremely difficult legal dilemma that seemed impossible to resolve fairly and favorably. I was completely floored–and relieved beyond belief–when Carlos Mahoney called the next day to let me know that he had found a way out of the morass. It was a brilliant solution. Mahoney and his assistant made a truly awful situation much easier to deal with because of the integrity which they brought to the work. They answered all my questions promptly. They never dropped the ball, and were always up to date on the issues when I called, which was no small feat, since the matter had many moving parts and extended over several years. Through it all, Mahoney offered truly wise counsel, making sure that my emotions did not get in the way of my interests. He also guided the case toward a conclusion that was far better than I ever hoped or imagined. I cannot recommend the firm more highly.”
