Understanding non-compete agreement enforcement

Businesses in Daytona Beach understand the importance of their proprietary information. It is for this reason that concerns are often raised when an employee leaves a company. Many may view these fears to be justified, and thus warrant requiring staff members to sign non-compete agreements. Such an agreement typically seeks to limit what a person can do when pursuing opportunities similar to the work they provide while in a company's employ. The question is whether or not such agreements are enforceable. 

Defining intellectual property

As business markets expand and information sharing proliferates, the question of what exactly is it that your company owns becomes more important than ever. Many clients in Daytona Beach have come to us here at Smith Bigman Brock with this very question, and oftentimes coming up with an answer proves difficult. There are undoubtedly unique aspects of your company that contribute to its competitive advantage; you of course want to ensure that those aspects are protected as your business' intellectual property (thus guaranteeing that they cannot be shared with or duplicated by others). Yet what exactly counts as IP?
