Employment Agreements And Executive Contracts

Businesses across Texas stake their financial futures on hiring key professionals and executives with the right skill sets. In many cases, technical specialists and upper-level managers are highly compensated employees who are afforded privileged access to trade secrets and intellectual property. If you are the owner of a business, doesn't it make sense to put some legal protections in place?
