Brian E. Spang and Peter A. Steinmeyer, Members of the Firm, will present "Practical Tips for Minimizing Litigation Risk  When Hiring from a Competitor," a downtown dinner program hosted by the Association of Corporate Counsel and sponsored by Epstein Becker Green.

Join us as for an interactive discussion of how to minimize litigation risk when hiring from a competitor. Discussion topics will include possible sources of liability, pre-hire due diligence, complying with restrictive covenants and garden leave clauses, whether to provide legal advice to candidates, how a candidate can be a “good leaver,” how “loose lips can sink ships,” avoiding claims of trade secret misappropriation, assessing the likelihood of litigation associated with a particular hire, responding to “cease and desist” letters, creating your own defensive exhibits, and possible settlement concepts.
