Everything you need to know about restrictive covenants and protecting confidential business information

Trade Secret
Yesterday, I had the privilege of presenting a webinar for LexisNexis with my colleague, Larry Holmes, and Sterling Miller. Larry and I have served in the restrictive-covenant trenches together many times. Sterling serves as Senior Counsel at Gober Hilgers. He’s also the former General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer to Sabre Corporation and former General Counsel to Travelocity.com. And without any prodding from me, Sterling admitted to reading this blog. Clearly, he’s good people.

Anyway, about that webinar. The three of us riffed for an hour and twenty on the ins and outs of non-competition and non-solicitation agreements. Plus, we offered some drafting tips and discussed ways to protect confidential information. And, of course, I couldn’t resist intersecting those topics with social media. Secret sauce, anyone? At the end, we took 15 minutes of questions from folks like you.

If you’d like to get a copy of the webinar, I’m pretty sure that I can hook you up. (Don’t let me down, Lexis!) Drop me a line and I’ll do my best to take care of you.

And before I leave you for today *** burp *** — I’m all class, folks. For those of you in the Lehigh Valley, if you’re going to attend the SHRM Lehigh Valley October Conference next week, we need to connect IRL. With a few of my friends from the EEOC, my presentation will walk you step-by-step through the process of how to address an EEOC Charge of Discrimination.

Oh, who are we kidding?!? None of my readers have ever had to experience that, amirite? But, just in case you’re, err, asking for a friend, let me know, so you can shower me with praise and dollars, but, mostly dollars I can look out for you.
