  • Non-Compete Agreement

Covenants Not to Compete and Not Solicit

March 9th, 2018|0 Comments

I have always been impressed by tow companies’ tolerance for financial risk.  The expenses in the tow business are enormous and growing every day.  At the end of the line, there is one company owner who has likely financially guaranteed all of these risks and the liability for the same.  It is understandable that an owner might want to mitigate these risks in any way that they can.

  • Tow Rotation

Tow Monopoly or Tow Rotation?

March 2nd, 2018|0 Comments

Some tow companies will do whatever it takes to get on a tow rotation.  I’ve seen tow companies come up with all sorts of creative ways to achieve this.  What I’ve never seen is the Wall Street Journal covering tow rotations.  I’ve also never scene a tow company facing a high profile criminal indictment for tow rotation practices.  But this was exactly the case in a February 21, 2018 article captioned “10 New York City Tow-Truck Firms Indicated.”

When Michael McGovern and I started this website in 2016, we wanted to create a place where tow companies (as opposed to tow drivers) could safely and quickly obtain accurate legal information from attorney’s knowledgeable in the towing industry.  In doing so, we recognize that, maybe more now than ever, there is a big difference between tow company owners and tow drivers as much of the risk tow companies now face comes from claims made by drivers against their employers.  We are careful not to publicize this information in other publications for fear that it may be read by tow companies and drivers alike.  However, we feel comfortable publishing it here because our subscribers are owners or high level employees.
