How to Beat Your Virginia Non-Compete for Lawyers

Now available for employees – and attorneys – we are offering a 60-minute online seminar, “How to Beat Your Virginia Non-Compete.”

Our goal is to help employees and attorneys better understand their workplace rights under Virginia law. Topics include how to avoid a lawsuit, ensure a smooth transition to a new job, and do so while preserving reputation and good will.

The class is available on-demand. Credit is available for continuing legal education (CLE) and participants may register through the website.

From the course description:

In Virginia, non-competition agreements are governed by common law principles and are unenforceable if not limited to protect a legitimate business interest. Join Virginia attorney Lauren Ellerman as she discusses the ins and outs of these complex agreements, and provide viewers with tips and tactics for beating Virginia non-compete contracts. The presenter will furnish practical advice on various scenarios, such as when a client receives a cease and desist letter, or when a client has been sued for allegedly violating a non-compete agreement.

We will also discuss for negotiation, declaratory judgment actions, defending an employee in litigation, resolving trade secret disputes, and more.
