  • Litigation Costs. One thing is certain in litigation, it is expensive.

We go to great lengths to ensure that we take  as much of your focus off of the lawsuit so that you can focus on running and growing your business. Whenever possible, the Florida Business Lawyers at Sawan & Sawan will nip legal issues in the bud before they become costly distractions.

Non-Compete Agreements in Florida

At Sawan & Sawan, our Florida Business Lawyers frequently deal with disputes related to the violation of non-compete provisions in employment contracts. While non-compete agreements can be a great tool for protecting your business, the enforceability of non-compete agreements in Florida can be complicated and fact specific. In general, Florida businesses of all sizes use non-compete agreements to prevent former employing from doing the following:

  • Working for a competitive business;
  • Soliciting any of your vendors or employees; 
  • Soliciting your customers;
  • Sharing confidential information about your business

The most common question we get as Florida Business Lawyers about non-competition agreements is “are non-competition agreements enforceable in Florida?” The answer, however, is not so simple – but in general the answer is yes. In general, Florida law recognized the validity of non-compete clauses. However, in order to be enforceable in Florida, a non-competition agreement must comply with fairly specific requirements. The overarching requirement is that the non-competition agreement is “reasonably necessary” to protect a legitimate business interest. Moreover, Florida law requires that non-competition agreements be “reasonable in time, area, and line of business.” Florida law provides some guidance as to what is considered as “reasonably necessary” to protect a legitimate business interest. The Florida Non-Compete Statute lists the following legitimate business interests:

  • Valuable confidential information; 
  • Goodwil; 
  • Trade Secrets; 
  • Substantial relationships with customers, patients, and customers
  • extraordinary or specialized training
