Restrictive covenants, such as non-compete, non-solicitation, confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements, can be a valuable tool for businesses to protect their interests when an employee leaves the company.
This program, presented by Shawn Fabian of Sheppard Mullin Richter & Hampton LLP, discusses the key considerations involved in drafting and enforcing restrictive covenants in Illinois, as well as trade secret misappropriation claims, which are often related to restrictive covenant disputes.
Shawn D. Fabian is a senior associate in the Labor and Employment practice group at Sheppard, Mullin, Richter and Hampton, based in the firm’s Chicago office. He has significant experience analyzing the enforceability of restrictive covenants and structuring enforceable restrictive covenants to protect his clients’ business interests, and he prosecutes and defends actions across the country involving the enforcement of non-compete, non-solicit, and other restrictive covenants, as well as misappropriation of trade secrets claims under the Uniform Trade Secrets Act and the Federal Defend Trade Secrets Act. Mr. Fabian previously served as in-house labor and employment counsel at a nationally recognized teaching hospital in New York City.
