Enforceable Non-Competes: Making the Bite Equal the Bark
Presented by Dave Sanders of Foley & Lardner LLP and Andrew J. Olek, General Counsel, Weddingwire, Inc. Answer, “Absolutely!”, when your CEO asks, “But is it really enforceable?” This one-hour session will focus on drafting tools and tips to ensure the enforceability of non-competes with your employees. The panel will discuss model language that addresses recent court rulings and provide guidance on what courts would likely find to be reasonable within specific industries, since what makes sense for a government contractor will not necessarily be effective for a tech company. Attendees will come away with sample clauses and agreements, as well as a roadmap of questions to ask when drafting and negotiating non-competes.
