Non-Compete Agreements: Separating Myth From Reality
Understanding non-compete and other restrictive covenants is important to any attorney or HR professional representing a business. It is increasingly important where trade secrets and other intellectual property are present, and where customer good will is at risk.
In this breakfast briefing, we will cover various types of restrictive covenants that employers may use to protect their trade secrets and other business interests when employees leave to join the competition. We will discuss how to protect your company from unfair competition and prevent disclosure of confidential information and trade secrets. Leading experts will explain how to strategically draft agreements that are in sync with business needs and appropriate for employers.
This lively briefing will address the following:
- Specific tools available to employers to help safeguard their confidential information and trade secrets
- How employers may create enforceable agreements to protect themselves from unfair competition by former employees
- Circumstances in which courts generally enforce such agreements
The speakers will be Gregory Reilly and David Warner, shareholders in Littler Mendelson’s New York office.
