This CLE will ensure you walk away understanding California law regarding employer non-compete and non-solicitation agreements. The speakers will begin by covering the black-letter law before discussing nuances of these anti-competitive provisions, including applicable judicial opinions. Perhaps most valuable to attendees, significant time will be devoted to discussing how to advise California employers and departing employees in avoiding the common pitfalls associated with these clauses.


  • Which non-compete agreements are enforceable in California?
  • How can California employers protect confidential information?
  • In what circumstances can an employee solicit its former employer’s employees or vendors?
  • How should you advise employees or employers on these restrictive covenants?
  • What should departing employees know and do about these restrictive covenants?
