Confidentiality provisions are ubiquitous. They can appear as the subject of free-standing confidentiality agreements, or as material terms or "boilerplate" in such common contracts as employment agreements, merger and acquisition documents, partnership, LLC, and shareholder agreements, contracts for real estate and personal property, sales and service agreements, and licensing, distribution, and franchise agreements. Indeed, the confidentiality agreement is often the very first document to be negotiated in a significant transaction. Attorneys who draft or fail to correct problematic confidentiality provisions may, if representing the disclosing party, risk exposing their client's confidential information to the dangers of public disclosure or, if representing the receiving party, risk causing their client to incur unnecessary and often disabling restrictions and lost opportunities. This practical program will show you how to draft effective and enforceable confidentiality provisions, as well as how to prepare and review stand-alone non-disclosure agreements.
