Employer Defense in Employment Litigation
We handle two main types of employment law disputes:
Allegations of Wrongful Discharge
An ex-employee fired for cause or let go for business reasons claims that he or she was wrongfully terminated. Jason Kuchmay is a seasoned trial lawyer who can mount an effective employer defense against claims of termination on the basis of age discrimination, whistleblower retaliation, filing claims against the company, or other illegal and compensable reasons.
Non Competes and Restrictive Covenants
We both initiate and defend lawsuits relating to trade secrets and employee agreements. We have represented physician groups and other professional practices, as well as health-care companies and businesses in any industry, in litigation of non-compete agreements, non-solicitation agreements and non-disclosure agreements.
Common scenarios include:
- Doctors or dentists who leave the practice and take clients in violation of a non-solicitation agreement.
- Key employee leaves company to work with a competitor and reveals insider knowledge to the competitive detriment of our client.
- Ex-employees who sue our clients because the non-compete agreement is so restrictive that they cannot find work in their field.
Trial Experience in Employer Defense
Mr. Kuchmay has the extensive experience in federal court litigation that many business litigation attorneys do not, and provides a vigorous defense. However, we always analyze the client's potential exposure and merits of the claim, so that clients can make informed decisions about out-of-court settlements versus proceeding to trial.
