and Non-Competition Agreement

Written by New Jersey Covenant Not to Compete Attorney Fredrick P. Niemann, Esq. of Hanlon Niemann, Freehold, Monmouth County, New Jersey

If you own a business, chances are you’d rather not have competition.  Admit it, it’s true.  The attempt to use restrictive covenants to prevent someone from engaging in a competitive business has a long history.  Limited restraints on competition which are no broader than reasonably necessary and which do not materially or adversely affect the public interest are generally enforceable in New Jersey.

Restrictive covenants not to compete and non-competition agreements are most often used by employers with employees and upper-management personnel and purchaser(s) of NJ businesses to prevent a person or business from competing against them in the same industry, soliciting their customers or employees, or disclosing confidential information or trade secrets to competitors.

Restrictive covenants are also often fought over in the context of a failed or terminated employment relationship.

If your case involves an actual or potential covenant not to compete dispute in New Jersey and you would like to speak to an experienced attorney personally, call Fredrick P. Niemann toll free at 855-376-5291. You may reach Mr. Niemann at extension 107  or 115, or e-mail him at fniemann@hnlawfirm.com.  He will be happy to meet with you.

I own several small businesses. I’m good at what I do but legal matters and dealing with lawyers and legal issues is stressful. I called Fredrick P. Niemann and have developed a great relationship with his lawyers and staff. They have reviewed my leases, negotiated the buyout of my former business partner, handled land use problems in a neighboring county and generally have really been there for me. I really like them personally and professionally. If you are a small business owner, give them a call.

Fred is an amazing and dynamic person. I have attended a few of his work shops and CEU events over the years and his interactive discussions have been both educational and entertaining. He is one of the few lawyers out there that I do trust and does whatever he says he is going to (Accountability) who ever I have referred his way has always thanked me for connecting them and this is why I continue to work w/ Fred. Great person, excellent ethics, and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend him.
