Why You Should Attend
This program will provide all of the essential information you need to know about restrictive covenant law, including understanding the types of restrictive covenants, the interests they can protect, and the rules for their use. You will gain insights into how to protect your company’s trade secrets, customer relationships, and workforce, and other protectable business interests, and how to position your company in the event of any future regulation of noncompetes or further state limitations.
Understanding the changing landscape and its complications and implications is nothing short of critical – particularly for companies engaged in business across state lines.
Bringing together experts in this area of law, the program starts with a level-setting of basic noncompete law, the difference between noncompete agreements, nonsolicitation agreements, and nondisclosure agreements, and how to use each to your advantage. The program will then cover the basics of trade secrets and other protectable business interests, and how companies can use restrictive agreements to protect them. Finally, we will then explain to how to put it all together to best protect your company’s information, customers, and workforce.
