Program Overview:

Presented by Kara M. Maciel and Dan C. Deacon - Conn Maciel Carey LLP

Many companies frequently use non-compete and non-solicit clauses in their employment agreements. However, there are several important legal issues to consider before drafting and executing these agreements.  When an employee moves on to another opportunity, your business’ intellectual property, trade secrets, and practices walk out the door as well and unless you have the proper protections in place this information could fall into the hands of your competitors.  Courts in different jurisdictions take very different approaches to whether and under what circumstances non-compete agreements are enforced.  Furthermore, different courts and even some state legislatures have different stances on the operation and enforcement of choice of law provisions that could ultimately influence the outcome of an employment dispute.  It is critical that employers carefully draft employment agreements to cover all of these bases to ensure that its trade secrets are protected and the policies maintained in its employment agreement are enforced.  This webinar will provide an overview of how restrictive covenants and choice of law provisions are treated throughout the country and how employers can best situate themselves to protect their trade secrets and intellectual property, including drafting techniques and best practices for employers when employees are terminated or otherwise leave the company.
