Is Your Non-Compete Enforceable?: Practical Tips for Drafting & Enforcing Restrictive Covenants

When:

December 7, 2017

 

Organization:
Leech Tishman

Where:

525 William Penn Place
29th Floor
Pittsburgh, PA 15219

Description

As technology advances, the workplace is changing, making it easier for departing employees to walk out the door with their former employers’ trade secrets, customer data, and other confidential information. New laws, such as the Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016, have been enacted, and litigation over trade secrets and noncompete agreements is on the rise. As a result, HR professionals and legal counsel must determine how best to protect their companies’ intangible assets from competitors and former employees within the bounds of applicable law and without infringing on employees’ rights. Restrictive covenant agreements can achieve this goal, but do you know whether the agreement you’re using is up-to-date and likely to be enforced?

In this live breakfast seminar, Leech Tishman Employment Practice Group partners Sally Griffith Cimini and Lisa Schonbeck, as well as Litigation Practice Group partner Chris Channel, will discuss recent developments in the law of restrictive covenants, best practices for drafting and enforcing restrictive covenants, and strategies for defending against enforcement.

This program has been submitted to the Pennsylvania Continuing Legal Education Board for review and approval of 2 (substantive) credit hours. This program has also been submitted to the HR Certification Institute for review.
