Media Mention

In a World at Work article, Quarles attorney Chris Nickels shared his perspective about the possible impact of a proposed ban by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) on employer noncompete agreements.

Nickels, a Labor & Employment partner based in the firm’s Milwaukee office, commented on what employers might do in the event of a ban.

An excerpt:

Currently, there are three states with laws banning noncompetes — California, North Dakota and Oklahoma. Others have state laws restricting the use.

“Employers in those states have found creative solutions to protect their businesses, which should serve as a roadmap,” said Chris Nickels, partner at Quarles & Brady LLP.

“Some creative solutions businesses can turn to include incorporating confidentiality agreements to protect their information and preventing the transfer of confidential information off company devices and networks.
