Overview

In this Master Class, participants learn the specific terms typically negotiated in the context of a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) and gain familiarity with the contexts in which NDAs are typically used (including acquisitions, employment arrangements, partnerships, and joint ventures), and the distinctions and similarities between NDAs across these contexts. The materials guide participants through a variety of NDAs, discussing each of the provisions, including why they are necessary and how to best negotiate them in each context.

Objectives

Upon completion of this Master Class, participants are able to:

  • Identify the circumstances in which an NDA is appropriate and in what form
  • Draft and negotiate basic terms in an NDA
  • Modify an NDA for a particular purpose

Simulation Exercise

Participants are tasked with commenting on an NDA, from the perspective of both the discloser and recipient, and proposing revisions as necessary.

CLE Credit

Participants may earn up to 1 CLE credit in the State of California (General Credit). Application for New York, Florida and Texas accreditation of this program is currently pending for up to one (1) hour of CLE credit. Credit is for transitional and non-transitional attorneys in NY. This class is appropriate for both newly admitted and experienced attorneys. Financial Aid may be available for qualifying participants.
