A non-compete agreement is crucial for protecting a company’s trade secrets and other valuable assets from employees who leave the business. However, some organizations fail to include legitimate restrictions for employees’ conduct even after their employment ended, exposing them to risks. More so, the potential for misappropriation or theft of trade secrets.  This underscores the need for businesses and their counsel to be well-versed in drafting sound non-compete agreements and be abreast of emerging developments to be able to structure preventive measures and mitigate potential risks.

Listen as a panel of key thought leaders and distinguished experts organized by The Knowledge Group provide the audience with a comprehensive discussion on utilizing non-compete agreements to ensure trade secret protection.
