Gordon & Rees to Present Dec. 9 Webinar on Employment-Related Trade Secret, Noncompete and Franchise Issues

As part of the firm’s 2014 National Employment Law Webinar Series, Gordon & Rees will hold a webinar titled “Out of Sight, Out of Mind: Trade Secret, Noncompete and Franchise Issues in the Employment Arena,” on Dec. 9 from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. PST.

The live webinars offer free, practical training on current and emerging employment law issues for large and small companies. Gordon & Rees attorneys provide in-house counsel, human resources professionals, payroll managers, and others with a convenient way to stay up to speed so they can make well-informed employment decisions on a day-to-day basis and avoid the expense and uncertainty of litigation.

For the December webinar, attorneys from Gordon & Rees’s Employment, Intellectual Property, Franchise, and Commercial Litigation Practice Groups will discuss how companies can best preserve their valuable proprietary information. Gordon & Rees San Diego partner Kimberly Howatt, Chicago partners Paul Gamboa and Patrick Moran, and New Jersey partner Peter Siachos will address how businesses should proceed now that the traditional ways of protecting proprietary information are increasingly becoming obsolete. A Q&A session will follow the webinar.
