Employee Non-Compete Restrictions: A Key Tactic for Protecting a Start-Up’s IP

Bill Egan will lead a discussion on October 15, as part of Twin Cities Start-Up Week, on how and why a reasonable, limited employee non-compete restriction can be a valuable and inexpensive component a start-up company’s efforts to protect its nascent intellectual property. Among the topics to be discussed:

  • Non-competes as but one part of a start-up’s overall risk management strategy

  • What non-competes can do and what they cannot

  • The difference between a non-competition and a customer non-solicitation restriction, and why non-solicitation clauses are better  

  • Debunking popular myths about the enforceability of non-competes

  • The difference between an enforceable non-compete and one that will get tossed

  • Why there is no such thing as a “good form” of a non-compete agreement

  • Tactfully reinforcing non-compete obligations to an exiting employee
