In closely held companies, its partners are the keys to its success. They build, maintain and have access to key customer or client relationships, understand how services are delivered or products made, and have privileged access to the “know how” that makes the company a success. They are at once both the keys to success and the greatest threat to the company should one or several of the partners leave the company and decide to compete with their former partners. The challenge is devising a series of enforceable protections to guard against this risk. This program will provide you with a guide to designing and drafting business and employment agreements and policies to protect closely held companies from unfair competition from departing partners.
