article "5 Things for the Virginia Lawyer to Keep in Mind When Addressing Non-Compete Issues." The article provides an overview of a non-compete, which is an agreement that restricts the party subject to it from engaging in certain activities that compete with the business of the beneficiary of the non-compete, and outlines several points for lawyers to consider when negotiating, drafting, or litigating disputes over non-competes. Joe uses recent and noteworthy decisions to illustrate his suggestions, and concludes that lawyers who understand these five items will be equipped to tackle any non-compete issues that may arise.
