Many businesses progressively fear that their trade secrets and valued business relationships are at risk of attack by competitors – and even by their own employees. Do you know what it takes to protect those critical assets in the ever-changing world of trade secret and non-compete law?

Join Practical Law and Epstein Becker Green attorneys Peter A. Steinmeyer, Robert D. Goldstein, and Anthony J. Laura on Wednesday, November 30, 2016, at 1:00 p.m. EST for a free, 75-minute webinar providing insights into recent developments and expected trends in the evolving legal landscape of trade secrets and non-competition agreements. This webinar will focus on how to navigate this developing area and effectively protect client relationships and proprietary information.

Topics will include:

  • The Defend Trade Secrets (DTSA), including the new federal remedies available to employers and the steps they need to take to fully benefit from them.
  • Newly passed state statutes addressing restrictive covenants, including who can enter into them, industry restrictions, and temporal restrictions.
  • Recent decisions regarding what constitutes adequate consideration for a non-compete.
  • Interesting developments determining choice of law issues, including a new California statute restricting choice of law provisions.
  • Administrative agency developments, including agency enforcement actions cracking down on non-competes.

A short Q&A session will follow.
