Competitive interference claims
If an organization plans to hire the perfect candidate, it needs to know whether the prospective employee has a non-compete, non-solicitation or non-recruitment agreement. Those agreements potentially can affect the candidate’s effectiveness for the hiring company. Our attorneys help clients to understand their company’s rights, opportunities and legal risks of hiring such a candidate.
Tortious interference laws prevent unlawful solicitations of a competitor’s customers, as well as prevent a competitor's unlawful solicitation of another's customers. The circumstances constituting unlawful solicitation vary from state to state. We help implement proper solicitation practices and policies to avoid unlawful solicitation claims against our clients' companies. If a business has been the victim of a competitor’s unlawful solicitation, we help them determine their rights and pursue appropriate remedies, which may include litigation and seeking injunctive relief.
