Employment and Non-Compete Contracts

Hipes Law attorneys have vast experience drafting and negotiating agreements covering most aspects of the employment relationship. Some of the agreements we are often called upon to draft or negotiate include:

    • Employment agreements
    • Executive compensation agreements
    • Severance agreements
    • Non-competition, non-solicitation or other restrictive covenants
    • Assignment of invention agreements
    • Non-disclosure agreements


These agreements can be incredibly complex. They may cover a wide variety of important issues, including, for example, stock options, restricted stock, deferred compensation, bonuses, commissions, retirement benefits, scope of termination for cause, arbitration, choice of law, choice of venue, forum selection, attorney fee reimbursement, indemnification, and change of control. The experienced employment attorneys at Hipes Law can help you evaluate the risks and potential exposure involved in most types of employment agreements. We understand the legal issues and we work hard to ensure that these agreements are properly drafted to best protect our clients’ interests. When disputes arise, we aggressively litigate claims involving breach of employment contracts, violation of non-compete agreements, theft of trade secrets, employee and customer raiding, and other unfair trade practices.
