We are pleased to announce that an updated version of our guide, “Non-Compete Laws: Illinois,” is now available in PDF format. The updated guide reflects the recent Hafferkamp v. Llorca decision of the Second District of the Appellate Court of Illinois, which holds that Reliable Fire Equipment Company v. Arredondo, et al. (an Illinois Supreme Court decision which resolved several years of confusion over the appropriate standard for enforcing non-compete agreements in Illinois), should be applied “retroactively and proactively” to both future non-compete cases as well as pending non-compete cases that were filed before the date that Reliable Fire was decided.

The guide is part of a series of guides written and published by our firm, Epstein Becker Green, and the Practical Law Company.
