Businesses face constant challenges when seeking to protect proprietary information and prevent unfair competition, particularly, in our rapidly changing world of internet or email, which facilitates mass dissemination of protected information. When coupled with the increased mobility of employees in a fast paced business environment, there is invariably a risk that threatens the investment any employer makes in customer relationships, trade secrets, confidential information, and personnel. To protect this investment, Nicholas & Bell lawyers draft and enforce restrictive covenant agreements and protect trade secrets businesses across Florida. We also help clients determine whether non-competes are legally enforceable before hiring a competitor’s former employee.

Nicholas & Bell trade secret and non-compete litigation practice takes pride in their experienced attorneys who have cross functioned expertise in matters of trade secrets, unfair competition, non-compete agreements, intellectual property, and discovery laws throughout the United States.
