Jeremy Goldstein a New York Based Lawyer Speaks on why it is Necessary for Employers to have Non-Competent Agreement

Jeremy Goldstein is a highly successful US-based attorney and employment law, expert. Goldstein is the founder of Jeremy L. Goldstein Associates, a New York-based law firm that specializes in matters corporate governance, executive compensation as well as mergers and acquisition. Goldstein holds a JD degree in law and has been in the industry for more than a decade. Besides running a successful law firm, Goldstein is a philanthropist and serves as a board member of the Fountain House Foundation, a mental health charitable organization.

Jeremy Goldstein on a day to day basis deals with many conflicts of interests’ issues relating to Non-Competent Agreements. Non- competent agreements serve to protect employers’ rights in certain situations. According to Goldstein, based on experience, it is quite essential for employers always to have a Non-Competent Agreement as it serves to protect their business from unfair competition from former employees. Former employees who may have inside knowledge of all your business operations, process, or strategies may decide to establish a similar business or share the knowledge with your business competitor.

Non- compete agreements are usually written by legal practitioners who have specialized in employment law and are presented to employees during the hiring process. However, in other situations, the agreements may be drafted for current employees. Before seeking the services of an employment lawyer, Goldstein advises employers first to take a moment and evaluate the need for the agreements in their businesses. Many employers, according to Goldstein, are lately beginning to draft the agreements. The reason for this latest trend in the industry, according to Goldstein, is that most employers want to limit competition from their former employees. Former employees previously had access to crucial information, unique formulas, strategies as well as clientele that they could use to their advantage. As a result, the unfair competition may lead to massive financial loss and ultimately, closure of their businesses.

Jeremy Goldstein says non-competent agreements are quite sensitive and must be drafted in such a way that it will be difficult for anyone to challenge it in court. According to Goldstein, the agreement must not be too restrictive as many courts will not enforce agreements that are so restrictive and appears to coerce employees or tie them to working with the company. The agreement should be drafted by a professional and should seek to protect a company from any business harm. The agreement must be reasonable for both parties say, Goldstein. Some of the things to put into consideration aside from the limitations and restrictions of an agreement are the length of time when the agreement will be enforceable as well as the geographical locality the agreement will cover as these are things that courts of law mostly review. An agreement that surpasses ten years and covers a vast geographical region is likely not going to be enforceable. Only agreements that focus on legitimate concerns and have reasonable restrictions can be enforced says, Goldstein.

José Auriemo Neto of JHSF in New York City

José Auriemo Neto was recently spotted in New York City with his wife and children. Reportedly, they are slated to spend the next six months here. But why? Allegedly, it is to keep track of the recent JHSF investment project near Central Park in Manhattan. His children are even enrolled in school in the city, so the six month move is likely one that has been planned for awhile. Additionally, part of José Auriemo Neto’s strategy about this investment building was revealed as a result of this move. The building is five stories and was a historic reconstruction of a building in the area. Inside, however, tenants are only allowed to rent the apartments, they are not allowed to purchase them. According to several sources, this is because the profitability for renters is greater than it is for a single sale. Additionally, these apartments all feature service that is akin to a five star hotel, which is a pretty nice bonus. But who is José Auriemo Neto and what is JHSF anyhow?

José Auriemo Neto is the chairman of the board of directors of the Brazilian real estate acquisition and development firm, JHSF. This group has been involved in developments all over Brazil, as well as world wide.

Additionally, the company is currently 1.2 billion Brazilian Reals, with an annual profit of approximately 380 million Brazilian Reals. JHSF focuses more on higher end developments, such as shopping malls with designer stores, airports, and luxury hotels and apartments. Some of their notable projects, other than the New York City development is several luxury condominiums in Punta Del Este in Uruguay, which is a huge tourist location. In Brazil, they also built the Parque Cidade Jardim, which is a massive development. It houses a full, high end shopping mall, as well as several residential towers, a hotel, and offices.

Talkspace Reviews:

One client focused on how she randomly picked a therapist because of her work within cognitive-behavioral therapy. Talkspace shows the skillsets of each particular therapist. The client talked about how Talkspace allows you to text your therapist whenever you truly need them which create a more comfortable and private feeling; which is important to clients. The clients expect to receive robotic type responses to the person that they exchanged messages until they notice that it’s an actual therapist. Also, something that makes Talkspace convenient is if the person isn’t comfortable with that particular therapist, the client is given the option to go into the settings to request a different therapist and explain what will make the next therapist selection better.
