Anyone who deals with contracts is accustomed to seeing confidentiality clauses. Failure to pay attention to details can have major consequences, however, for the scope and enforceability of nondisclosure agreements often turns on their precise wording. In negotiating or litigating confidentiality clauses, it is essential that companies and counsel read the fine print. This program will address the scope of NDAs, including how they are limited by other law — including federal intellectual property law and state law regarding restraints of trade. The panel will also discuss practical considerations for in-house counsel when negotiating or litigating NDAs.

Key topics to be discussed:
  • Scope of Nondisclosure Agreements
  • Limitations placed on NDAs by Law
  • Considerations to Keep in Mind when Negotiating and Litigating NDAs
