Business Litigation, Non-Compete Fights, and Insurance Coverage Disputes
Contracts are the backbone of personal, local, statewide, national, and international business. Sometimes, for a variety of reasons, contracts are breached or broken. Damages result. Additionally, employers are increasingly requiring employees to sign non-compete agreements as a condition of employment, which are later challenged or enforced. One of the greatest frustrations for persons or businesses is purchasing expensive insurance coverage to guard against certain losses, only to have the insurance company refuse to provide the coverage that is clearly required when those losses occur. In these instances, businesses and employees have turned to Justin Madden because of his reputation as a trial lawyer, but also because of his willingness to handle these cases on either an hourly fee or a contingency fee.
Recently Justin was able to terminate a non-compete agreement in favor of a terminated female employee, and a few months later assisted a business employer in enforcing a non-compete agreement against a former employee who had made off with the company's customer list and was competing against it. Justin has recovered more than $500,000 in two other matters where a business was forced to sue its insurance company for refusing to cover a business loss that was covered by an insurance contract.
