Executives who do not have an employment contract are employed “at will.” Pechman Law Group assists executives in negotiating employment agreements so that they are protected against wrongful discharge and mistreatment during their employment. We negotiate solutions to employment contract disputes and, where necessary, litigate contract disputes in arbitration, state court, or federal court.
One of the principal areas of litigation in employment contracts is the protection of trade secrets. Employees are sometimes required to sign a confidentiality or non-disclosure agreement. We have represented both employees and employers in trade secret litigation. Often these cases are on a very fast track as an employer will often seek an injunction or a temporary restraining order to protect its trade secrets or other sensitive and confidential business information.
Employment agreements and executive agreements often contain non-competition and non-solicitation agreements. Although public perception is that restrictive covenants and non-competition agreements are generally non-enforceable, the area of non-competition is fraught with dangerous consequences. We have advised executives and companies in a variety of industries concerning the practical consequences and legal effectiveness of non-competition agreements.
Sometimes clients are required by a contract to arbitrate their employment disputes before American Arbitration Association, FINRA, or the New York Stock Exchange. Lou Pechman has handled over a hundred arbitrations in his thirty years of practicing employment law.
