What is a fiduciary duty?

There are some business relationships in Texas, and elsewhere, which may impose legal requirements of care and loyalty. These requirements may be referred to as a fiduciary duty. According to the Cornell University Law School’s Legal Information Institute, a fiduciary duty is a legal responsibility to act solely in the interests of another person, group or business. Failing to uphold these duties may be considered a breach of your fiduciary duties, which may lead to a business dispute.

Enforcing non-compete agreements in Texas

As a previous post has discussed, non-compete agreements are a contract clause that Texas employers may use to prohibit workers from working for their competitors after leaving their employment. Sometimes, however, issues may arise when employers seek to enforce such covenants. Therefore, it behooves business owners to understand when covenants not to compete are enforceable to help ensure that these clauses are structured appropriately.

Violating non-compete clauses may result in contract disputes.
