Mr. Noyes works with the Business Litigation group, as well as in the Business Law and Transactions group. His litigation practice focuses on representing companies in business litigation, disputes between owners, employment litigation, restrictive covenant and business tort litigation. He appears regularly in Delaware Chancery Court, and has represented clients in numerous state and federal courts in Delaware and Pennsylvania. On the transaction side, he represents companies in finance transactions, sales transactions, and general business matters, and represents employers in preparing employment agreements, handbooks, and separation agreements.

“There is never only one way forward. The path to having a satisfied client, whether in business matters or litigation, is not only to provide the optimal solution, but to help the client understand the process and all the available options.”
