Employment Agreements

Employment Agreements

Shingler Lewis has substantial experience litigating covenants not to compete and non-solicitation agreements, as well as claims for unfair competition, tortious interference with contract, and misappropriation of trade secrets. Because we recognize that virtually any individual or company can find itself as the plaintiff or defendant in these actions, Shingler Lewis attorneys have represented employers and employees on both sides of unfair competition issues. We have pursued and defended against temporary restraining orders, preliminary injunctions, and permanent injunctions in state and federal courts throughout Georgia. We recognize that time is often a crucial factor in these disputes, and we have cultivated relationships with computer forensics firms to enable us to respond quickly and efficiently to protect our clients’ interests.

In addition to litigation, Shingler Lewis is able to evaluate the enforceability of noncompete and other employment agreements for employer clients. Our attorneys also advise individuals who are in the process of transitioning from one employer to another. These services allow us to assist our clients in resolving disputes before litigation arises, and to position our clients favorably in the event that litigation becomes necessary.
