Hiring from a Competitor: Practical Tips to Minimize Litigation Risks


Presented by Epstein Becker Green Attorneys
Peter Steinmeyer and Robert Goldstein

Employers frequently poach employees from competitors to gain a marketplace advantage. Although common, this practice poses significant risks to the hiring employer, particularly if the poached employee has access to the competitor's trade secrets or is bound by a non-compete, non-solicit, or non-disclosure agreement.

To help employers and their counsel understand and minimize these risks, this 75-minute webinar will provide guidance on how to anticipate, prepare for, and respond to legal claims by the competitor.

Topics include:

  • Potential legal claims employers face when hiring employees from a competitor.
  • Practical steps employers can take to minimize the risk of contractual, common law and statutory claims.
  • Whether and how to respond to cease and desist letters.
  • Potential settlement terms and concepts.
  • And more.
