Noncompete Agreements and Trade Secrets


Honigman’s Noncompete Agreements and Trade Secrets Practice Group represents clients in disputes involving non-competition agreements and the related protection, use and ownership of trade secrets and proprietary information.

Our attorneys conduct trade secret and related audits, as well as prepare restrictive covenants that are tailored to each client’s business, including noncompetition, nonsolicitation, confidentiality and invention agreements.  We counsel clients on issues relating to the separation and post-employment activities of executives, senior management, inventors and other valuable employees.  In addition, we assist our clients in minimizing the risks associated with the recruitment and retention of key personnel working for competitors.

Honigman aggressively prosecutes and defends claims for breach of noncompetition agreements, breach of nonsolicitation agreements, breach of fiduciary duties, employee raiding, unfair competition, breach of invention agreements, and misappropriation of trade secrets.  Our attorneys act decisively to ensure that individuals immediately comply with all contractual, statutory and common law obligations to our clients.
