Foley & Lardner LLP Partner David Sanders invites you to join and participate in Practicing Law Institute’s upcoming in-depth presentation, “Noncompetes and Restrictive Covenants2020: What Every Lawyer, Human Resources Professional, and Key Strategic Decisionmaker Should Know
,” on Friday, January 31, 2020
– via webcast or live in San Francisco.
Noncompete agreements and similar restrictive covenants help companies protect their trade secrets, customer relationships, and other recognized legitimate business interests. But, noncompete laws vary state by state, ranging from bans in California, Oklahoma, and North Dakota, to strong, pro-enforcement policies in Florida. And, while public opinion, evolving state legislation, emerging federal regulation, and trends in judicial review and enforcement are moving toward greater restrictions on the use of these agreements, the risks posed by employees who are not subject to restrictive covenants is increasing.
Understanding the changing landscape and its complications is nothing short of critical – particularly for companies engaged in business across state lines.
Bringing together experts and thought leaders from around the country, the program starts with a level-setting of basic noncompete law, and then delves into nuanced and advanced issues from the perspectives of the employee, the former employer, and the new employer.
