Arizona Restrictive Covenants: An Overview

Arizona Restrictive Covenants Meeting with Attorneys

When creating, reviewing or litigating restrictive covenants in Arizona, it is critical to understand what they mean and when they are enforceable. Counxel Legal Firm focuses on business and employment law practice on these issues.

Restrictive covenants are often called different things that will sound more familiar to you such as non-compete agreements, non-solicitation agreements, and non-disclosure agreements (NDA’s). To understand these better, let’s analyze them separately.   

1. Non-Compete

A non-compete agreement is used to stop an individual from competing against their employer in a specific geographic area for a definitive period of time both during and after their employment with a company.  

2. Non-Solicitation of Clients 

A non-solicitation of clients agreement is used to stop an individual or entity from diverting a company’s clients away both during and after their relationship with the company has ended. 

3. Non-Solicitation of Employees/Vendors

A non-solicitation of employees/vendors agreement is used to stop an individual or entity from diverting a company’s employees and vendors away both during and after their relationship with the company has ended. 

4. Non-Disclosure/Confidentiality

NDA’s or confidentiality agreements are used to stop an individual or entity from diverting a company’s proprietary or trade secret information both during and after their relationship with the company has ended. 

Arizona law does not tell us when a restrictive covenant is enforceable (except in the case of television and broadcast employees). Rather, Arizona judges have made decisions over time that leave a trail for us to follow as to when a restrictive covenant is enforceable and when it is not. At Counxel Legal Firm, we act as your trail guide through these judge’s decisions so that you do not get lost and you make it out safely.
