When we implement our plan to protect your life’s work, the world gets out of our way.
Business has two speeds: fast and faster. In that vortex, executive employment disputes can swiftly spiral into debilitating legal problems that crush lucrative opportunities for businesses and high-level professionals alike.
That’s why at the first sign of trouble, Steve Harvey Law immediately rolls up its sleeves and gets to work on a plan.
Our executive employment attorneys have deep experience representing both companies and senior-level professionals. We can efficiently, effectively, and thoroughly analyze your situation and develop strategies for prompt, air-tight resolution. If your matter cannot be expeditiously settled and requires aggressive litigation and trial, we do that effectively too. We have successfully litigated and tried numerous high-stakes cases in federal and state courts throughout Pennsylvania and other states. We also have written and lectured extensively on executive employment issues, providing respected thought-leadership to other attorneys.
We handle a full range of executive employment disputes including:
Non-compete contracts, also known as restrictive covenants or covenants not to compete;
Confidentiality agreements, also known as nondisclosure agreements or NDAs;
Trade secrets, including related issues such as injunctions, damages, and the inevitable disclosure doctrine;
Employee fiduciary duty, including duty of loyalty and the preparatory steps doctrine;
Tortious/intentional interference with a contract;
Our experience protecting a diverse array of clients ― including senior-level executives, corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies, and family-owned businesses ― gives us a powerful competitive edge. We know how the other side thinks, and we use that knowledge to quickly craft multi-faceted, built-to-last solutions that terminate existing problems and neutralize potential problems before they occur. And we accomplish this with discretion, diplomacy, and sensitivity, so that your life’s work and stellar reputation remain intact.
Let us help you protect your life’s work, impeccable career, valued assets, and good name, while providing a path forward for new opportunities, prosperity, and peace of mind.
We represent corporations, partnerships, limited liability companies, owners, shareholders, investors, partners, directors, officers, consumers, competitors, employers, and employees. They hail from a wide range of industries including banking, IT, high tech, pharma, clinical research, manufacturing, insurance, health care, finance, real estate, and professional services.
