Attorney Peter Mavrick, Focusing on Labor and Employment Law in Fort Lauderdale, Will Speak at a Seminar to Attorneys About Law and Litigation Regarding Confidentiality, Non-Compete, and Non-Solicitation Agreements

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwired - Sep 16, 2014) - Attorney Peter T. Mavrick was selected to be the speaker in October 2014 on the topic of "Confidentiality, Non-Compete, and Non-Solicitation Agreements" in Miami, Florida for Sterling Education Services, which provides legal education to practicing lawyers. Mr. Mavrick will explain the nature of confidentiality, non-compete, and non-solicitation agreements, when they should be used, the legal options in drafting and enforcing such agreements, and issues regarding their enforceability in court. Mr. Mavrick will provide a detailed overview of the statutory requirements for a valid contract that protects confidential information and bars competition and non-solicitation. Mr. Mavrick will also discuss the large body of Florida and federal case law interpreting the statute. The presentation will also address remedies available to the company/employer, applicability to successor companies, prior breaches and independent covenants and how they impact enforceability, and choice of law provisions. 

The Mavrick Law Firm has successfully represented clients in many non-competition covenant cases, representing both the businesses seeking to enforce the covenants as well as the businesses and persons against whom enforcement is sought.

Non-competition contracts are authorized by statute, i.e., section 542.335, Florida Statutes. Although non-compete contracts are contrary to Florida's general public and statutory policy encouraging free enterprise and competition, they are allowed under certain circumstances as an exception to that policy. They can be enforced to prevent competition by former employees and their employment by competitors.

Peter Mavrick, a Fort Lauderdale employment attorney, has extensive experience litigating non-compete contracts, including representation at preliminary injunction hearings and related litigation. Mr. Mavrick has successfully represented newly competing businesses, employers who hire employees subject to non-competition agreements, employees who allegedly have violated non-compete contracts, and businesses enforcing their non-competition contracts. 

Mr. Mavrick has practiced law for over two decades, concentrated in labor and employment law and litigation for over 17 years, and is the principal of the three-attorney Mavrick Law Firm. He has earned the prestigious AV Rating from Martindale Hubbell, which is its highest rating for legal competence and ethical practice. Mr. Mavrick also is rated 10 out of 10 with lawyer rating service AVVO.
