When it comes time to sign a contract, you may need advice to help you consider all the long-term impacts set forth by the terms and conditions. In some instances, you may have signed an agreement in good faith, with the belief that the document was designed to protect your best interests. Even in instances where this is true, it is not unusual for someone to run into problems with their contracts as time goes on.
Whether you are experiencing damage as a result of the current conditions of your contract or need help stopping someone from breaching an existing contract, the lawyers at Eldridge & Blakney can help.
Contract disputes may involve:
- Disputes with terms of employment
- Disagreements over the definition of contract terms
- Accusations of coercion and fraud
- Disputes about whether a party has lived up to the terms of an agreement
- Claims that contracts were intentionally misleading or vague
- A material breach of contract that violates the terms of the contract as a whole
- A minor breach of contract which violates certain terms of the contract
Contracts can be vague and open to interpretation. A successful outcome for your case depends on crafting a solid argument that can clearly demonstrate your side of the situation. Our team can work closely with you to achieve your or your business’s goals.
A non-compete agreement is a contract that forbids you from working with a business or entity that directly competes with the business you are currently affiliated with. The terms of a non-compete agreement can continue for several years even after you have stopped working for an employer.
There are many rules that regulate what a legal non-compete agreement may include. For instance, a non-compete cannot forever bar you from working with a competitor, nor can it infringe on your ability to seek new employment and obtain income. Sometimes, employers will intentionally write illegal non-compete clauses to discourage employees from working for an employer.
If you are running into a conflict due to a non-compete agreement, contact our Knoxville business law attorneys today to review your contract. We may be able to find something that will free you of your non-compete terms or hold another party to the terms of the agreement.
