Dallas, Texas non-compete lawyer Keith Clouse both drafts non-compete agreements and litigates disputes over alleged breaches of non-compete agreements. He notes that, in Texas, these agreements must meet certain legal standards to be enforced. If a non-compete provision does not satisfy those standards, a court must reform the agreement and enforce it as reformed.
If a covenant not to compete contains limitations as to time, geographical area, or scope of activity to be restrained that are not reasonable and that impose a greater restraint than is necessary to protect the goodwill or other business interest of the employer, a court must reform the covenant not to compete. The court must reform the agreement to the extent necessary to cause the limitations as to time, geographical area, and scope of activity to be restrained to be reasonable and to impose a restraint that is not greater than necessary to protect the goodwill or other business interest of the employer.
Given the intricacies of non-compete law, someone who foresees problems with a non-compete agreement should meet with experienced employment law counsel immediately.
