Protecting key employees, customer relationships, market share and confidential business information is essential to maintain a company’s competitive edge. We help our clients compete fiercely, but lawfully, and help them protect their business advantage against unfair and unlawful competition.

Clients routinely turn to Porter Wright for advice regarding how best to proactively protect their competitive advantages and avoid potential disputes with other businesses. We develop business information protection programs that safeguard companies from potential legal and business landmines before trouble arises. This focused strategy protects our clients with non-compete and non-solicitation agreements, policies to guard proprietary business information and management, and anti-raiding strategies to protect and maintain key talent. Further, we help clients planning to hire employees from a competitor, do it lawfully to avoid potential lawsuits.

If proprietary business information has been breached, trade secrets have been taken, non-compete agreements have been violated or former employees have improperly solicited customers or removed electronic data, prompt action often is required to preserve a company's information and employment and customer relationships. Our experience allows us to mount a quick and aggressive response to business competition challenges.
