19 June 2009 Publication

Mass High Tech

Foley Partner Russell Beck authored an article that appeared in Mass High Tech on June 19, 2009 titled “Court backs employer on noncompete agreements, mostly.” Beck discusses a Massachusetts Superior Court decision that allowed a senior EMC employee to work for rival company Hewlett Packard on the condition that his work does not compete with the work he performed for EMC. He notes that the court’s decision is a positive development for tech companies and should be considered a clear warning for employees who are thinking about leaving their employer to work for a competitor.
