In today's intensely competitive economic environment, companies in all industries frequently encounter conduct by competitors that crosses the line. When competitors don't play within the rules, businesses trust Parker Hudson to bring or defend actions successfully and cost-effectively. Our attorneys offer extensive experience in all types of business torts, false advertising, trade secret, and restrictive covenant disputes. Our attorneys are thought leaders in this area, having spoken and written at length on the new federal trade secrets law (the Defend Trade Secrets Act), as well as Georgia’s restrictive covenants statute.
We obtained one of the first decisions enforcing a nationwide non-competition covenant under Georgia's restrictive covenant statute: Cellairis Franchise, Inc. v. Duarte, 2015 WL 6517487 (N.D. Ga. Oct. 21, 2015). While most of our clients are companies or employers across a wide range of industries, we also represent individual executives and departing employees who are subject to restrictive covenants or threatened misappropriation claims.
We prioritize big-picture thinking and proactive strategies, recognizing that your goal is to avoid or resolve disputes efficiently while still protecting your company's hard-earned business assets. That’s why we look for practical, creative solutions that get the job done.
With our attorneys, you will find the resourcefulness and quality of service of a “Big Law” litigation team but with fee arrangements that provide more value to the client. Whether you are a large employer, a franchisor, a small business owner, an executive, or a departing employee, we offer extensive experience and a deep bench at every level.
