Employers have long required employees to sign agreements designed to preserve confidentiality, safeguard trade secrets, protect customer relationships and goodwill, and restrict competition.  It is important that attorneys understand how such agreements should be crafted at the outset to ensure balance with regard to restrictiveness and protection.
Our panel will offer drafting tips that address both employer and employee concerns relative to non-competition, non-solicitation, and other restrictive covenants.  
Learn what considerations are important to assess in the initial drafting phase to increase enforceability as well as predictability in the event of litigation.  Attendees will also obtain a valuable perspective from the bench courtesy of Hon. Janet L. Sanders of the Massachusetts Superior Court.

  • Common drafting pitfalls and oversights
