As a former software entrepreneur and management consultant, Warren Braunig is particularly well suited to advise technology and software companies in solving their most difficult business and legal problems.

He has particular expertise in issues of trade secret and employee mobility. His clients have included Google, Comcast, Western Digital, Williams-Sonoma, Dialpad, CREXi, and Cherwell Software. Warren earned his J.D. from New York University School of Law and served as a clerk to Justice Kim McLane Wardlaw on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

Protecting trade secrets is one of the most significant challenges that many businesses face. Apart from their competitors, several companies believe that their client relationships or trade secrets can also be easy targets for their own workers. Employees changing jobs can take advantage of their previous employer’s proprietary relationships or information for their personal gains. Employers have long relied on non-compete agreements with employees to protect their business.
However, recent developments in the restrictive covenants landscape have illustrated the aggressive attacks on employers’ use of non-competes. It is, therefore, imperative that counsel and employers remain vigilant for the emerging trends and developments relating to trade secrets and non-competition law to be able to ensure compliance.
In this Live Webcast, a panel of thought leaders and practitioners assembled by The Knowledge Group will discuss the significant and latest issues in the evolving landscape of trade secret and non-competition Law. Speakers will also offer the best compliance practices in drafting and negotiating non-competes, thus, avoiding litigation risk.
Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
- Trade Secret Protection and Non-Compete Agreements - Statistics
- Recent Legal Trends, Developments, and Updates
- Notable Court Decisions
- Addressing Litigation Pitfalls
- Best Compliance Practices
