Non-Compete & Confidentiality Agreements

There is always a risk when hiring an employee or developing a business relationship with another party that they may use your business information to begin a competing business or work for a competitor once the relationship comes to an end. Kelleher & Buckley can help you develop or enforce a non-compete or confidentiality agreement to protect your company and prevent this from happening. Most importantly, we want to provide you with some peace of mind.

Employment Agreements

As an employee or an employer, it’s essential to document the terms of the employee/employer agreement. You need a detailed employment contract summarizing all specifics in a distinct manner, allowing for clarity for all involved parties. Our attorneys know the devil is in the details. They take the time to review every detail, no matter how small.

Severance Agreements

The formation or dispute of these important documents specifying the terms of an employee’s departure from a company can benefit greatly from the counsel of a skilled employment law attorney. When tensions are high, clients can rely on our experienced attorneys to be a reassuring ally in their corner.
