Mid-level marketers of petroleum product often encounter or need to consider such covenants in a) employment contracts with key personnel, and b) contracts involving the acquisition of locations or other jobberships.
Legal disputes often arise concerning ownership of underground storage tanks, which have been installed or affixed to real property.
