Taft attorney Daniel R. Saeedi will present at the Jan. 29 Illinois State Bar Association Business and Securities Law Section live webcast “Non-competes and Other Restrictive Covenants: What You Need to Know.” The webcast will not only provide a basic overview of the law in Illinois regarding restrictive covenants, but will also compare Illinois law with two other jurisdictions on varying ends of the enforceability spectrum. Sample forms and drafting tips will be included.
Every business is built on the idea that it has information that is indispensable to its success – and limiting employees' use of this information is imperative if that business wants to continuing succeeding. It is equally important that attorneys representing business clients know how to draft, review and enforce non-competes, non-disclosures and non-solicitation agreements for their business clients.
Saeedi’s presentation, “Restrictive Covenants – The Current State of the Law in Illinois,” will explore current case law regarding the “reasonableness” of a restrictive covenant and enforceability. He will examine:
- What standards must be met in order for a covenant to be deemed reasonable.
- Whether any special rules regarding the consideration for enforceability exist.
- How Illinois law compares to California and New York.
- Non-competes, customer non-solicitation, employee non-solicitation and non-disclosures.
Saeedi focuses his practice on commercial litigation. He has litigation experience in a diverse range of state and federal matters, including municipal liability, constitutional litigation, breach of contract, fraud, fiduciary law, professional negligence, appellate, employment law, health fraud and discrimination claims.
