Executives Moving to Texas Should Ask a Texas Employment Lawyer to Explain Texas Non-Compete Law

/cdklawyers.com// 02/18/2012

Texas non-compete lawyer Keith Clouse not only negotiates non-compete agreements for executives entering into employment relationships, but he also litigates disputes over these agreements when executives leave employers. In some cases, these disputes involve misunderstandings about Texas non-compete law. Therefore, Mr. Clouse cautions an executive who is asked to sign a non-compete agreement that will be governed by Texas law to consult with a Texas employment law attorney before signing the agreement.


Non-compete law varies by jurisdiction; just because an executive “knows” the law of one state does not mean the executive knows the law in Texas. And, Texas non-compete law is not only unique, but it is also rapidly changing. For example, last year the Texas Supreme Court issued a game-changing ruling regarding the consideration needed to support a non-compete agreement. For these reasons, an executive contemplating a non-compete agreement that will be governed by Texas law should speak to a qualified Texas employment law attorney so that the executive fully understands the contractual rights and obligations arising under the agreement.


To speak to Mr. Clouse or to another Texas employment law attorney about a proposed non-compete agreement, please contact the Dallas employment law attorneys at Clouse Dunn LLP via email [email protected] or telephone at 214 220 3888.
