Upcoming Free Webinar: Strategic Approaches for Drafting NDAs

Posted on 10/12/2017 by Thomas Pia, in News and Events, Webinar

Frederick A. Spaeth, Partner at Dilworth IP, will be hosting a FREE webinar on Wednesday, November 1st at 1:00 PM (EDT). This installment in the Dilworth IP Webinar Series is entitled Strategic Approaches for Drafting NDAs: A Critical Look at ‘Standard’ Clauses and Current Trends – A 2017 Update, and will focus on providing helpful strategies for properly structuring Nondisclosure Agreements (NDAs). NDAs are used everywhere: in business, politics, religious organizations, government, etc. Templates are easy to find, but experienced users will attest that there is no universal ‘standard’ NDA. In practice, an NDA should be tailored to the situation at hand and to meet the needs of the parties involved. Otherwise, the parties may be left with an ill-fitting agreement that doesn’t reveal its flaws until a dispute is brewing. This webinar will take listeners beyond a ‘one-size-fits-all’ view for a detailed look at how an NDA can and should be structured. The discussion will touch on choosing clauses to insist on and those to let go, on agreement language that goes without saying but should sometimes be said nonetheless, on non-standard clauses for specific situations, and on recognizing when the terms needed in an NDA may be dictated by external factors. The influences of recent laws, such as DTSA (Defense of Trade Secrets Act of 2016), will be discussed as well.
