Missouri and Illinois Non-Compete Agreement Lawyers

Executives and professionals eager to start or continue a new job often sign non-compete or mandatory arbitration agreements that are disadvantageous if the employment relationship ends. These agreements may restrict your right to accept another job within your field of expertise, even if you are terminated by your current employer. We help our clients understand these agreements and assist them in exploring and negotiating more favorable terms.

Understanding the Impact of a Severance Agreement

Employees who have been laid off or terminated for cause may be offered complex severance agreements with short deadlines for accepting or rejecting them. The terms of these agreements can severely limit your rights going forward. If you were terminated wrongfully, the severance agreement will waive your right to pursue legal action against your employer. Our attorneys have analyzed hundreds of these agreements and have successfully helped our clients understand and negotiate improvements to them. Our employment litigation experience allows us to quickly analyze your options and advise you as to whether the severance package is in your best interest.

Contact our dedicated attorneys if you have questions about non-compete, severance or other employment agreements.

The choice of a lawyer is an important decision and should not be based solely on advertisements.
