Greenberg Traurig Publishes a Multi-Country Survey on Covenants Not To Compete

NEW YORK – March 7, 2018 – Labor and employment attorneys from the international law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP recently published a multi-country survey InfoPAK℠ on covenants not to compete through the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC). The survey is a resource for in-house counsel considering utilizing covenants not to compete in order to protect their company’s proprietary information including its trade secrets, intellectual property, and other confidential information.

The InfoPAK℠ provides a comprehensive summary of the law governing covenants not to compete in 14 different countries, including the key statutes, whether consideration is required, whether they are enforceable, and the geographic and time restrictions courts have found to be reasonable. It aids in-house counsel in the advising and drafting of covenants, provides guidance for common contract issues, as well as guides further research by providing references to relevant statutes and case law.
