NJ Non-Compete Lawyers Discuss The Advantages Of Mediation

By Thomas McKinney

Our NJ Non-Compete Lawyers litigate cases and disputes arising between employers and former employees over the terms of NJ non-compete agreements. We typically handle these matter on behalf of individuals, but we have worked on these matters for both individuals and companies. We have seen that it is very rare for a NJ Non-Compete case to go to trial. The cases usually start out very aggressive and then settle after both sides have spent a significant amount of money on attorneys’ fees.

Non-Compete cases move very quickly because the side moving to enforce the non-compete will apply for temporary restraints. We strongly recommend that the parties try and mediate non-compete disputes before spending the time and resources on litigating the matter. A mediation will allow the parties to come to an agreement and resolve the dispute amicably before spending a large amount on attorneys’ fees.

If you have a NJ Non-Compete Agreement and your employer has filed a lawsuit against you, please contact our NJ Non-Compete Lawyers to discuss your matter in more detail.
