Labor Attorney Cole Quoted in Article on Nevada Supreme Court Ruling


​LAS VEGAS – The Las Vegas Sun quotes Labor and employment attorney Howard Cole of Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie LLP in an article on noncompete clauses following a recent decision by the Nevada Supreme Court.

The ruling represents a “paradigm shift,” and Nevada employers should immediately review employment agreements, Cole said in the Sun.

The article, “With ruling on non-competes, casinos could be forced to adjust,” examines effects of a July ruling by the Nevada Supreme Court that could have wide-ranging significance for any employer who holds their employees to restrictive covenants of non-competition.

In Golden Road Motor Inn, Inc. d/b/a Atlantis Casino Resort vs. Islam and Grand Sierra Resort, 132 Nev. Advanced Opinion 49 (“Atlantis”), the Court said that it would not enforce a restriction that was greater than required for the protection of the entity for whose benefit the restraint was imposed or imposes an undue hardship on the employee.

Writing in a message to clients, Cole asserts that the decision will fundamentally impact the interpretation and enforceability of almost every non-competition agreement in Nevada.
