  • Description
    Non-compete clauses are notoriously difficult to enforce. Over the past few years, changes to the law regarding these clauses and other restrictive covenants related to employment have left parties on both sides uncertain as to whether these clauses are enforceable at all and to what extent. This CLE course will explain these clauses and discuss how different jurisdictions evaluate the enforce-ability of non-compete clauses and the various jurisdictions that allow a fiduciary to solicit former clients even in the wake of a clause. The course will review options available to employers in the case of violations and offer tips and strategies for effectively defeating non-compete agreements. Participants of this class are welcome to receive a Free copy of “To Compete or Not to Compete: The Definitive Insider's Guide to Non-Compete Agreements in New York” by clicking on the hyperlink to the book and filling out the book order form.
