Trade Secrets and Non-Competes

Holland & Hart is committed to protecting employers’ legitimate business interests and intellectual property.

Maintaining a competitive edge in today’s marketplace is challenging enough without concerns about protecting confidential information. At Holland & Hart, we understand a properly drafted, enforceable non-compete agreement and other restrictive covenants can be critical to ongoing success when key employees leave a business. 

Our attorneys promptly and aggressively litigate claims against those who breach or interfere with such agreements. We also regularly advise clients how to avoid a misstep when hiring a candidate subject to a non-compete agreement, and defend clients when competitors attempt to leverage unenforceable or overly broad agreements. 

We understand the need to stay current on the evolving state-specific limitations governing restrictive non-competes, new federal activity in the area, and developing case law. Keeping our clients up to date on these developments is essential to maintaining enforceable agreements and avoiding unwanted litigation. 


Unless you are a current client of Holland & Hart LLP, please do not send any confidential information by email. If you are not a current client and send an email to an individual at Holland & Hart LLP, you acknowledge that we have no obligation to maintain the confidentiality of any information you submit to us, unless we have already agreed to represent you or we later agree to do so. Thus, we may represent a party adverse to you, even if the information you submit to us could be used against you in a matter, and even if you submitted it in a good faith effort to retain us.
