Restrictive Covenants in Employment Agreements - Enforcement and Defense Pointers
Wednesday, February 26, 2014 8:00 AM - 9:30 AM

City Bar Member Price : $15.00
Non Member Price: $30.00

Join us for an informal breakfast discussion concerning the effective enforcement and defense of claims under restrictive covenants in New York as viewed from different perspectives. The panelists will share tips on ways to strengthen restrictive covenant claims and discuss ways to increase the likelihood they will be enforced. You will also learn about defenses and impediments to enforceability, and strategies for employers to reduce potential liability when hiring employees encumbered by such agreements away from competitors. Different perspectives will be offered, including the court's views on these types of disputes and observations from plaintiff and defense practitioners.
