No business or individual welcomes conflict, especially when it comes to income from contact with clients. But when disputes do arise, it is often necessary to take forceful action to resolve them. At TAXSOLUTIOS4U, in Bogart GA, we are well-equipped to aggressively, effectively and efficiently resolve these issues.
We have extensive experience in matters related to noncompete and nonsolicitation agreements for clients in many different industries. We have represented a broad spectrum of people, including sales people, doctors, insurance agents and other licensed professionals.
- Noncompete agreements:When employers share ideas and business practices with employees, partners and others, a noncompete agreement helps make sure that these people do not impact the employer’s bottom line by working for the competition. By law, noncompete agreements must be limited in scope, duration and geography in order to be enforceable.
- Nonsolicitation agreements: Customers are a business’s biggest asset. Nonsolicitation agreements limit the contact that a former employee can have with a business’s existing clients. When an employee signs a nonsolicitation agreement, he or she agrees not to take valuable customers along when leaving the business.
Employers will sometimes try to add a noncompete clause after and employee has already been hired. Unless adequate compensation is exchanged in these situations, the agreement may be unenforceable. Ideally, employers should consult with a lawyer before drafting any employment-related agreements, and employees should seek legal representation before signing them.
Breach of Contract Claims:
At TAXSOLUTIOS4U we represent businesses in contract disputes. Our clients include small, medium and large businesses based in North East Georgia, including but not limited to Clarke, Oconee, Oglethorpe, Barrow, Gwinnett, Wilkes, Madison, Jackson, Walton, Forsyth and Dekalb County, as well as businesses located elsewhere throughout the nation, but engaged in disputes here.

Close attention to detail is one of our greatest strengths. When we take a contract dispute case, we carefully review the contract language. We then assess the way the law may apply to the contract terms. Often, our detailed analysis brings to light clear and effective ways to enforce a contract or defend against a breach of contract action — at times even while avoiding litigation.
