Becker Glynn pursuades court to void client’s restrictive covenant

A domestic client of the firm hired an employee formerly employed by the client’s competitor. The employee’s agreement with his fomer employer contained a restrictive covenant, including a non-competition clause. The former employer sued the firm’s client and its new employee for breaching those covenants. We successfully moved for summary judgment and secured a ruling that the restrictive covenant and non-competition clause were void as against public policy.
