What happens when a key executive or employee with substantial interaction with the company’s key clients abruptly resigns, takes a job with your main competitor, and starts targeting your clients and employees with complete disregard for his/her agreement not to compete with you?

Join attorneys Alexandra Kamenetsky Shea and Maryann Stallone for an interactive discussion with our experienced litigators, who will provide you with key insights into all aspects of a restrictive covenant litigation, including what agreements are more likely to be enforced and what type of evidence it takes to convince a Court to grant you the type of emergency legal relief you may need to protect your business.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Break down all aspects of restrictive covenant litigation
  2. Identify which agreements are most likely to be enforced
  3. Discuss the type of evidence it takes to convince a Court to grant you the emergency legal relief to protect your business
