Bright and early Thursday morning, April 21, Oklahoma City law firm Phillips Murrah launched a new learning series called AM@PM Breakfast Forum. The hour-long presentation was held at Vast on the 50th floor of OKC’s iconic Devon Tower.
Jason addressed key considerations for identifying and protecting trade secrets and other proprietary information. This included steps to identify what processes and data have value, how to identify and defend its value, and what types of measures need to be in place to protect it from dissemination or use by employees, customers and competitors.
Kathy talked about the use of restrictive covenants and non-competes, including partnership and operating agreements. She also addressed considerations of what types of restrictive covenants that should be in place in the event of dissolution or a buy-out, what written agreements and policies effectively restrict the solicitation of a business’ customers and employees by former employees and contractors, and policies regarding electronic devices and data.
The event included breakfast prepared by Vast and a networking opportunity following the presentations. There was also a drawing for a pair of Oklahoma City Thunder Playoffs tickets.
AM@PM will be an ongoing series that will cover a range of topics that are important to businesses and individuals who wish to stay at the forefront of their industries, protect their businesses and keep informed about the ever-changing legal and regulatory landscape.
