Defending Your Business Against Unfair Competition
The line between fair and unfair competition is not always clear. If you believe that a competitor is illegally undermining your business, you are protected under various state and federal laws.
Has someone misappropriated your company’s trade secrets? Is a covenant not to compete being violated or is your former employer trying to enforce a covenant not to compete that is unenforceable? It is important for you to know what can fairly be considered a trade secret and whether the covenant not to compete to which you are a party is enforceable. Generally speaking, Texas does not sanction harsh restrictions on a person’s ability to earn a living. However, reasonable restrictions to protect trade secrets are routinely enforced.

Managing partner, Robert Kruckemeyer, has secured damages and injunctive relief in suits over defamatory acts, deceptive practices and fraudulent activities by competing businesses.
