About the Program

In the ever-evolving digital landscape as well as legislative and regulatory changes and proposed changes to the use of non-competes, the preservation of trade secrets stands as a cornerstone for businesses striving to secure a competitive edge. As we continue to navigate the complexities of remote work and the jurisdictional differences in restrictive covenant enforcement, the safeguarding of these invaluable assets becomes not only essential but increasingly paramount.

Seyfarth is thrilled to extend an invitation to you for the second installment of our dynamic 2024 Trade Secrets Webinar Series, presented by our Trade Secrets, Computer Fraud, and Non-Compete Practice. In this session, Kate Perrelli, Dan Hart, and Cat Johns will unravel the intricate relationship between non-compete agreements and employee mobility, with a specialized focus on the perspectives crucial to HR professionals and In-House General Counsel.

Key Highlights:

  • Strategic HR Alignment: Gain insights into aligning non-compete agreements and other restrictive covenants with HR practices to fortify trade secret protection in remote work.
  • Remote Work Risk Mitigation: Explore unique risks tied to remote work and discover proactive strategies for steadfast trade secret protection under General Counsel guidance.
  • Tailored Solutions for Professionals: Delve into effective strategies tailored for HR and General Counsel, navigating the dynamic landscape of remote work for organization-specific trade secret safeguarding.
  • Practical Insights: Acquire actionable best practices and practical insights for HR and General Counsel teams, equipping them with essential tools for trade secret management and preservation.
