The enforceability of employee noncompetition agreements or other restrictive covenants has been the subject of a frenzy of recent litigation, which often turns on highly fact-intensive issues.

We invite you to join our panel of attorneys for this program in which we will focus on best practices for employers with respect to drafting, implementing, enforcing and litigating noncompetition and related agreements.

We’ll keep you thinking ahead on these key topics:

  • Crafting enforceable noncompetition agreements
  • Steps to take when a key employee leaves in order to prevent the piracy of proprietary transportable computer data
  • Recent trends in the case law, including the impact of social media such as LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter
  • Strategies to consider in noncompetition litigation

  • Todd Shinaman, Counsel
  • Joseph Carello, Associate
  • Kristen Mollnow Walsh, Partner
