Foley Hoag, a leading law firm with offices in Boston, New York, Paris and Washington D.C., has extensive experience in prosecuting and defending disputes concerning the enforcement of non-competition, non-solicitation and confidentiality agreements between employers and employees. Our attorneys also help clients with related claims of unfair competition, violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, misappropriation of trade secrets, and tortious interference. In many of these cases, our extensive legal knowledge of computer forensics investigations has enabled us to achieve successful outcomes for our clients.

Our work in this area is not limited to litigation. Foley Hoag creates strategic approaches to these legal issues and puts in place appropriate agreements to protect our clients’ business interests. Our lawyers also have extensive experience in advising departing employees and their prospective employers on appropriate approaches to dealing with existing restrictive agreements.
