Andrew Botti to Speak on Non-Competition Agreements

As part of the program, an expert panel will review the history of the recent non-compete law, how prior efforts shaped the law, and any recent developments.  The panelists will also discuss best practices for drafting agreements, what the experts are doing, and how the new law is affecting enforcement of agreements under the old law.
