Ivo Becica Presents at ACC CLE Institute
Obermayer partner Ivo Becica will present a webinar, titled “Non-compete Clauses and Other Restrictive Covenants: How to Best Protect Your Business” on July 8, 2020. The panel is a part of Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) virtual CLE Institute. Non-competition, non-solicitation, and confidentiality and non-disclosure provisions are an important tool to protect your organization from unfair competition from departing employees and rival businesses. However, due to varying applicable laws and business needs, the language of these agreements needs to be carefully tailored to your situation to ensure enforceability. This presentation will focus on best practices and pitfalls when drafting these documents.
