Labor & Employment Attorney Keith Wilkes was recently quoted in Variety regarding the ban on Noncompete Agreements

Keith Wilkes, a partner at law firm Hall Estill and a labor and employment legal expert, also anticipates a legal challenge to the FTC decision. “Regardless of this partisan administrative decision, we suspect that a lawsuit will be quickly filed in federal court — in most likely a conservative jurisdiction — seeking an immediate stay of the implementation of the noncompete ban until the federal courts weigh in and ultimately decide its fate,” Wilkes said.
