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, the rules for their use, and basic drafting and litigating techniques. 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 federal 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 key concepts in noncompete law, the difference between noncompete agreements, nonsolicitation agreements, and nondisclosure agreements, and how to use each to your advantage, the business interests that can be protected, and how companies can use restrictive agreements to protect them. Next, we will learn the basics of drafting of restrictive covenants for companies located in one state or many. Finally, we will then explain to how to put it all together to best protect your company’s information, customers, and workforce.
