In closely held companies, its partners are the keys to its success.

They build, maintain and have access to key customer or client relationships, understand how services are delivered or products made, and have privileged access to the “know how” that makes the company a success.

They are at once both the keys to success and the greatest threats to the company should one or several of the partners leave the company and decide to compete with their former partners.

The challenge is devising a series of enforceable protections to guard against this risk.

This program provides a guide to designing and drafting business and employment agreements and policies to protect closely held companies from unfair competition from departing partners.

  • Business law and employment law techniques to protect closely held companies from unfair competition from departed partners
  • Incorporating protections in stockholders’, LLC members’ and operating agreements
  • Use of the organizational opportunity doctrine and implied common law duties to protect a company
  • Agreements to protect a company’s buyer from competition from the company’s sellers
  • Differences among non-competition, non-solicitation and non-disparagement agreements
  • Tailoring non-competition agreements with individuals to enhance enforceability
