A company’s confidential information and trade secrets are critical to its lifeblood. Moreover, client and vendor relationships that employers entrust to their employees and executives are a vital network to long-term business sustainability. Yet, employers across Asia regularly struggle with critical practices necessary to protect themselves from unfair competition by their own current and former employees. 

This session will examine the suggested practices employers should follow to reduce and manage unfair competition by current or former employees. Our panelists are both locally qualified and regional legal practitioners who will discuss the good, better and best practices of employers in Asia regarding noncompetition, nonsolicitation, and nondisclosure covenants and practices. Participants will also have the opportunity to discuss directly what they have seen, learned and wish they had done in the all-too-common scenario of a former employee who joins a competitor and is later found to have taken critical company information. 

Topics to be covered include:

  • Confidential information and nondisclosure covenants and practices
  • Noncompetition covenants in Asia and how multinationals manage them
  • Nonsolicitation covenants, an alternative or additional provision to manage unfairness
  • Enforcement considerations

The session will conclude with group discussions and takeaways.
