Your client informs you that its most valuable employee just resigned and went to work for its chief competitor. Your client is afraid other employees may leave with her, that she may have taken its customer list with her, and that she may have been soliciting customers to follow her to her new employer. What should you do? How can you help? This presentation will give you the answers! It will also provide guidance for lawyers representing clients in the position of the ex-employee and new employer.

V.    Comprehend the enforceability of employee non-solicitation agreements 

VI.   Protect your client's trade secrets during litigation
