The Impact of Global Disruption on Restrictive Covenants, and Protection of Confidential Information and other Business Interests around the World

CM Murray LLP, in association with Littleton Chambers and Fisher Phillips LLP, invite you to listen to a 50-minute podcast recording on “The Impact of Global Disruption on Restrictive Covenants, and Protection of Confidential Information and other Business Interests around the World”. 

This podcast recording forms part of our International Restrictive Covenant and Confidential Information Conference, that was due to take place in September 2020, which has been replaced with a series of live, online discussions. The series provides a unique opportunity for In-house Counsel, HR Professionals and Private Practice Employment Law and Dispute Resolution lawyers to hear from leading experts around the world on international restrictive covenant and confidential information issues for multinational employers, founders and senior executives.

Listen to the recording of the first discussion in the series, “Trade Secret Protections in the “New Normal”: Is your Information Secure from WFH and RTW Mishaps and Misappropriation?” here.

In this podcast recording, Sarah Chilton (Partner, CM Murray LLP, London UK), Beth Hale (Partner, CM Murray LLP, London, UK), Chris Stief (Regional Managing Partner in Philadelphia & Pittsburgh, Fisher Phillips LLP, USA), Gavin Mansfield QC (Littleton Chambers, London, UK) and Joydeep Hor (Founder & Managing Principal, People + Culture Strategies, Sydney, Australia) discuss from an international perspective, how the current climate and global affairs impact restrictive covenants. In particular, the panel address:

  • What protection do employers have if your business has diminished or your focus has changed;
  • The impact of increased global (virtual) mobility on restrictive covenants;
  • The impact on remote working on policing, enforcing and drafting restrictions;
  • How the current pandemic and the use of technology may impact the evidence trail;
  • Issues with enforcement across borders including the potential impact of Brexit; and
  • How the changing workplace culture may impact employee behaviour and competition.

Join us for our next panel discussion on “Atypical Worker Restraints and Beyond: Protecting Confidential Information and other Business Interests in Atypical Worker, Independent Contractor, Shareholder and Franchise Relationships” on 2 December 2020.  For further details and to register your attendance, please click here.
