Join Lerch Early business and employment attorneys for an important discussion about how important restrictive agreements are to protecting the ongoing operations of your business and its eventual succession or sale, and about how to persuade others to sign them. From noncompetes to NDAs, learn how these agreements can safeguard your employees, assets, and customers, and also enhance the value of your business.

What You’ll Learn

  • “Restrictive Covenants 101,” including noncompetes, NDAs/confidentiality agreements, nonsolicits concerning both customers and employees, and assignments of invention rights
  • What’s new in this area, including social media conundrums
  • How some supposedly “standard form” commercial NDAs can strangle your business
  • The practical implications of restrictions – what’s manageable, enforceable, operationally sound, relationship-enhancing—or not
