Non-Compete Agreements: Drafting and Litigation

No employer or employee should enter into negotiations over a non-compete agreement without representation from a lawyer. Further, employers can often expose themselves to liability when hiring employees from a competitor. If you are adequately represented, the potential for future conflict and litigation is dramatically reduced.

Idaho enacted new legislation in 2008 which radically changed the law regarding non-compete agreements. If you are unfamiliar with these changes in Idaho law, or if would like an attorney to review an existing non-compete agreement, call 208.288.1888 or contact us online today.

At Kormanik & Sneed LLP, we help clients negotiate, draft or revise non-compete contracts, helping them reach a fair agreement and avoid future litigation. When litigation does arise, we provide efficient, aggressive and experienced representation.

Prosecuting and Defending Trade Secret Actions

A trade secret is generally defined as any piece of information that meets two requirements:

  • It is not commonly known in the community or industry at large
  • It provides independent value to the employer or business

Not all trade secrets are glamorous. They can include manufacturing processes, code for a piece of software, a pricing structure or even something as simple as a client list. If someone reveals his or her former employer's trade secrets, it constitutes a violation of the Trade Secrets Act. Our attorneys prosecute violations of the Trade Secrets Act and we defend clients against charges for alleged violations.
