Collapse Non-competes And Other Restrictive Covenants: What You Need To Know LIVE Webcast
Presented by the ISBA Business and Securities Law Section

Every business is built on the idea that it has information that is indispensible to its success – and limiting employees' use of this information is imperative if that business wants to continuing succeeding. It is equally important that attorneys representing business clients know how to draft, review, and enforce non-competes, non-disclosures, and non-solicitation agreements for their business clients. Don't miss this live webcast that not only provides a basic overview of the law in Illinois regarding restrictive covenants, but also compares Illinois law with two other jurisdictions on varying ends of the enforceability spectrum! Sample forms and drafting tips are also included.
