CLE: Recent Trends and Practical Tips Regarding Restrictive Covenants and Trade Secrets
On September 24, 2015, Friedman Kaplan partner Hal Neier participated in a CLE panel on Recent Trends and Practical Tips Regarding Restrictive Covenants and Trade Secrets. Mr. Neier discussed recent developments in New York employment law governing restrictive covenants ranging from the Court of Appeals’ seminal decision in BDO Seidman v. Hirshberg through a bill currently pending before the New York State Legislature that purports to clarify the law in this area. Also participating in the panel were Erica Garay, a partner at Meyer, Suozzi, English, & Klein, P.C., and Taleah Jennings, a partner at Schulte Roth and Zabel LLP. The panel discussion, which was sponsored by National Arbitration and Mediation (“NAM”) in conjunction with The New York Law Journal, began at 9:00 am on Thursday, September 24, 2015, at NAM’s midtown offices, 122 East 42nd Street.
