Do’s and Don’ts: How to Draft Effective Restrictive Covenants & Avoid Traps for the Unwary

Wednesday, May 28, 2014

1:00 pm – 2:30 pm ET

Employers have long required employees to sign agreements designed to preserve confidentiality, safeguard trade secrets, protect customer relationships and goodwill, and restrict competition. To strike the right balance of restrictiveness and protection, it is important that attorneys understand how such agreements should be crafted at the outset, taking into account California’s unique statute as well as the law in other jurisdictions.

Our panel will offer drafting tips that address both employer and employee concerns relative to noncompetition, nonsolicitation, and other restrictive covenants.

Learn what considerations are important to assess in the initial drafting phase to increase enforceability as well as predictability in the event of litigation. Attendees will also get a valuable perspective from in-house counsel courtesy of Jeff Lambert, Vice President, Legal Affairs at The Active Network.
