Protecting Your Business Advantages: Trade Secrets and Nondisclosure Agreements - Presentation by Dan Forman for LA Law Library

Dan Forman, Managing Partner of the Los Angeles office and Chair of the Unfair Competition & Trade Secret Practice Group, will conduct the presentation “Protecting Your Business Advantages: Trade Secrets and Nondisclosure Agreements,” at the LA Law Library on May 1, 2018.

As a business owner, you try to do things that set you apart from the competition – and, often, you do not want the competition to know how you did it! In this class, learn how to protect the information that gives your business an edge.

This presentation will cover:

  • Trade secrets: how to obtain, protect, and enforce
  • Non-disclosure agreements
  • Non-competition agreements: enforceable or not?
  • Methods for protecting sensitive information
  • Your employee’s legal duty of loyalty: how far does it go?

Presented by Dan M. Forman
Dan M. Forman is the managing partner at the Los Angeles office of employment law firm Carothers DiSante & Freudenberger LLP. His knowledge expands beyond traditional employment law to the expanding field of trade secret litigation where he has successfully prosecuted and defended complicated cases.

Forman’s vast litigation experience, including bench and jury trials, also allows him to adeptly utilize alternative dispute resolution techniques to achieve efficient and expedited results in cases with high financial exposure. His experience extends throughout state and federal courts, as well as alternative dispute resolution venues. Forman represents clients before a wide range of regulatory agencies, including California’s Labor Commissioner, the Department of Fair Employment and Housing, Employment Development Department, Equal Employment Opportunity and similar agencies.

In addition to achieving favorable results in litigation, Forman advises California clients on the full gamut of employment topics in an effort to avoid claims. Forman counsels service providers, high tech companies, insurance agencies, security businesses, manufacturers, financial institutions, health and medical industry clients. He drafts wage and hour policies, employment and severance agreements, covenants-not-to-compete and trade secret confidentiality agreements, and advises on collective bargaining and WARN Act compliance.

To help employers and business executives stay ahead of emerging legal issues, such as social media, employee retention and non-compete and confidentiality agreements, Forman frequently provides employers and clients updates by his participation in various industry webinars and presentations.
