This newsletter explores important considerations for companies and some uncommon approaches to protecting your company’s competitive advantage, customers, confidential information and employees from unfair competition and poaching.

Decades of experience and knowledge of the uneven statutory and common law of the 50 states teaches that a company’s defenses to unfair competition must include a coordinated system of protection to be effective. Some states are friendly to efforts to protect competitive advantage, some are unforgiving and some are downright impossible. But whether you are in the best of states or the worst of states, there are some measures that every company should consider keeping in its arsenal to protect its company jewels.

Our newsletter includes articles on the following topics written by four members of the Competitive Advantage, Trade Secret and Computer Fraud and Abuse Team:


    • In-Term Contracts
    • Using Executive Compensation and Severance Plans
    • Top Restrictive Covenant Agreement Considerations for Employers
