When Employees Walk Out with More Than Memories: Protecting Your Confidential Information and Trade Secrets When Key Employees Defect
Greater Memphis Chamber
22 N Front Street, Suite 200
Memphis, TN 38103
The loss of key business personnel is inevitable. Your strongest salesperson invariably can catch a competitor’s eye. The account manager, who knows in detail the pricing and profit margins needed to succeed, will want to try her hand in a new arena. The problem occurs when these employees take the trade secrets, confidential information and goodwill with your customer base to a competitor for its benefit. When this defection occurs, every aspect of your business that you have worked so hard to create is at risk.
Join Fisher Phillips Memphis attorney Rob Ratton as he presents the strategies and legal tools needed to protect your business when the star employee decides to play for the other team. Topics will include:
- The use of restrictive covenants (non-competes, non-solicitation agreements. etc.);
- How to get the most out of the powerful new federal trade secrets law;
- Steps to protect confidential information and trade secrets; and
- What to do if a former employee tries to use your trade secrets and confidential information against you.
