Created on March 26, 2021





This program, presented by Leigh Ann Buziak and Kevin Passerini of Blank Rome, will provide a general background of state and federal law on restrictive covenants, including confidentiality, non-competition, non-solicitation, and non-interference provisions, before diving into specific drafting tips that will make your restrictive covenants more likely to be enforced in court. The faculty will present tips to ensure that restrictions are enforceable under state and federal law, with updates on changing state law and pandemic business trends. The course will also review how to use forum, choice-of-law, assignment, no defense, and other "miscellaneous" provisions that can help protect legitimate business interests.
