Considering Non-Competes and Other Ways to Protect Your Practice
Fisher Phillips attorneys Matthew Korn and Michael Elkon, the Co-Chair of the Firm’s Employee Defection and Trade Secrets practice group, will present the various ways that your practice can use restrictive covenants (non-compete, non-solicitation, and non-disclosure agreements, etc.) to protect your confidential information and key relationships. Matthew and Michael will talk about the current legal and political landscape for these agreements, as well as best practices for using them and practical considerations related to the enforcement of such agreements. If you’re currently using, considering using, or hiring someone subject to a non-compete or other employment agreement, you don’t want to miss this webinar!
