Non-Compete and Unfair Competition

In today’s fast-paced business climate, the ability of a company to retain and protect its customers, goodwill and proprietary information is paramount, and swift action is often necessary to avoid irreversible harm. The Delaware Court of Chancery, known foremost for its expertise handling complex corporate disputes, has for many years been a leading venue for the enforcement of non-competition agreements and disputes involving unfair competition.

The attorneys at Young Conaway Stargatt & Taylor, LLP’s Non-Compete and Unfair Competition practice group prosecute and defend entities in the Delaware Court of Chancery in matters involving violation of non-competition agreements, improper solicitation of customers and employees, removal of electronic data and confidential information, and tortious interference of business relations.

Our team of experienced trial attorneys and e-discovery practitioners is prepared on short notice to appear in the Court of Chancery for expedited injunction proceedings as well as trial on the merits. The depth and breadth of our experience in the Delaware courts and knowledge of Delaware law allows us to provide clients with practical litigation strategies and proven enforcement mechanisms.

We also counsel companies and other entities on Delaware law involving the enforceability of non-compete and other employment-related agreements, employee departure and recruitment tactics, and protection of business assets.
