Minnesota Non-Compete Law


The non-compete attorneys of Trepanier MacGillis Battina P.A. can review and negotiate your non-compete agreement and non-disclosure agreements, and represent you in non-compete litigation, trade secrets disputes, breach of fiduciary duty litigation, and unfair competition disputes.
TMB represents employers and individuals in all aspects of employment law concerning non-compete agreements, non-solicitation agreements, confidentiality agreements, and the protection of customer lists, trade secrets, intellectual property and business assets. We can help you:
  • draft a non-compete agreement
  • negotiate changes to a non-compete agreement
  • provide a legal opinion regarding your non-compete agreement
  • sue a former employee to enforce a non-compete agreement
  • defend you from a lawsuit by a former employer or competitor
  • Under Minnesota law, for a non-compete agreement to be enforceable, the agreement must:
    • be supported by adequate legal consideration (i.e., provide the employee with something of value in exchange, such as the initial job offer or a subsequent raise, promotion, or bonus);
    • serve a legitimate employer interest (such as protecting confidential information, trade secrets, or customer goodwill); and
    • be reasonable in scope, duration, and geography.
Because employers often quickly seek injunctive relief (a temporary restraining order or preliminary injunction) to put an employee out of business before critical customers and trade secrets are lost, timing is often critical in non-compete agreement matters.
