Non-Disclosure, No-Solicitation and Confidentiality Agreements

NDAs are everywhere and they have been around forever. Non-disclosure agreements can be found in every industry. They may be freestanding contracts prefatory to the commencement of confidential negotiations. They can be found in contracts of employment and intellectual-property licensing agreements. They may cover information exchanges in all types of joint ventures. Quite literally, they really are everywhere… woven into the fabric of research & development, employment and independent contracting, licensing and sales… even impacting real estate deals and construction contracts.

In this webinar join expert speaker Dr. Jim Castagnera, where he will discuss the types of NDAs: freestanding; boilerplate in a more comprehensive contract or contractual relationship; in the corporate policy manual or employee handbook.

Session Highlights: 

  • The essential aspects of an NDA: the identity of the parties; bilateral or unilateral; duration; categories of confidential information; remedies for a violation
  • Exclusions from the NDAs coverage, by express language or by operation of the law
  • Limitations on the use of the confidential information by the recipient and steps required to protect it from disclosure
  • International aspects of NDAs, including their enforceability in major trading nations such as Australia, China, and India
  • Non-NDA provisions in NDA Agreements
  • Legal remedies and the impact of arbitration clauses

Why You Should Attend: 

While NDAs aimed at concealing questionable conduct will be relatively rare for most practitioners, demands for non-disclosure protection are increasingly common and are often essential for commerce in our Information Age. For example, data released in January 2018 revealed that a third of the U.S. workforce is bound by NDAs… and the breadth of these provisos also has expanded. This webinar will also cover:-

  • What information is covered under the NDA umbrella (the scope of protection may far exceed trade secrets as defined by statutes and case law), and (2) Who in the organization is authorized to execute the NDA?

Who Should Attend: 

  • Attorneys, including in-house counsel
  • Chief Information Officers
  • Chief Human Resource Officers
