Written by New Jersey Covenant Not to Compete Attorney Fredrick P. Niemann, Esq. of Hanlon Niemann, Freehold, Monmouth County, New Jersey

If you own a business, chances are you’d rather not have competition.  Admit it, it’s true.  The attempt to use restrictive covenants to prevent someone from engaging in a competitive business has a long history.  Limited restraints on competition which are no broader than reasonably necessary and which do not materially or adversely affect the public interest are generally enforceable in New Jersey.

Restrictive covenants not to compete and non-competition agreements are most often used by employers with employees and upper-management personnel and purchaser(s) of NJ businesses to prevent a person or business from competing against them in the same industry, soliciting their customers or employees, or disclosing confidential information or trade secrets to competitors.

Restrictive covenants are also often fought over in the context of a failed or terminated employment relationship.
