Texas has specific statutes and requirements governing the use and enforceability of non-compete agreements and the protection of trade secrets. Non-compete and trade secret issues typically arise during times of emergency. Don’t wait until the proverbial “house is on fire” before creating a plan of action.

Join attorney Ehsan Tabesh from the law firm of Fisher & Phillips as he discusses what employers need to know in order to protect their trade secrets and to enforce non-compete agreements in light of evolving Texas and federal laws governing these issues.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Understand the enforceability of non-competition and non-solicitation agreements under Texas law
  2. Discuss the federal Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016 and how it intersects with Texas trade secrets law
  3. Review the benefits and disadvantages of relief available to prevent or remedy the theft of trade secrets or breach of non-competes and non-solicit agreements
  4. Survey recent developments in Texas law governing non-compete, non-solicit, and trade secret claims
