Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/21/2014 -- Under Pennsylvania law, for a non-compete agreement to be enforceable, (1) it must be incident to an employment relation between the parties, (2) the restrictions must be reasonably necessary for the protection of the employer, and (3) the restrictions must be reasonably limited in duration and geographic extent. The commercial lawyers of Philadelphia at the Law Offices of Sidkoff, Pincus & Green (SPG) are experienced in drafting non-compete agreements that conform to the law.
Moreover, the attorneys at SPG also have experience in litigating non-compete agreements on behalf of both employers and employees.
In Pennsylvania, the courts have established that in litigation over non-compete agreements, the burden is on the employee to demonstrate that the non-compete agreement at issue is unreasonable. However, at the same time, the same courts have continually held that non-compete agreements are disfavored in Pennsylvania and generally unenforceable. Because of the complexity of the law, it is helpful for employers to have attorneys who are experienced in both drafting non-compete agreements and litigating them.
The commercial lawyers in Philadelphia at SPG are available to provide legal representation for all areas of commercial law, including non-compete agreements and restrictive covenants.
