Frederick A. Spaeth, Partner at Dilworth IP, will be hosting a FREE webinar on Wednesday, October 19th at 1:00 PM (EDT). This installment in the Dilworth IP Webinar Series is entitled Advanced Strategies for Drafting CDAs – Beyond the Boilerplate, and will focus on providing helpful strategies for properly structuring Confidentiality Agreements (CDAs), or Nondisclosure Agreements (NDAs). NDAs seem to be used by everyone: businesses, politicians, religious organizations, celebrities, governmental bodies, etc., the single common denominator being an obligation not to share certain information with others. Beyond that, an NDA needs to be tailored to meet the needs of the parties involved, and counsel responsible for choosing and approving these agreements need to give them careful consideration, or the parties may be left with an agreement that doesn’t quite fit the situation at hand. 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 to best fit the parties involved and the purpose of the information exchange. 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.
