Non-competition

The legal scope of a non-competition clause very rarely corresponds to the literal reading that the manager can make of it, unless of course the latter is a specialized lawyer.

Astaé assists managers on this technical subject of the non-competition clause where the stakes can be very high: the manager may find themselves confronted with an employer seeking to avoid the non-competition indemnity on termination or, conversely, it is sometimes the manager who plans to make the most of his network and know-how within another group.

The non-competition clause fosters abundant litigation. We also intervene to defend executives sued for unfair competition.
