Recorded Webinar from January 31, 2023
Please join Fitch Even for a free webinar, “Full Disclosure About Non-Disclosure Agreements,” on January 31, 2023 at 9:00 a.m. PST / 10:00 a.m. MST / 11:00 a.m. CST / 12 noon EST.
Non-disclosure agreements (NDA) are often perceived as the simplest and easiest of agreements. Many practitioners have their one favorite form and observe a “one size fits all” approach to its use. NDA’s, however, serve to protect secrets, and the great variability of characterizing facts in a given application setting can greatly impact how well, or how poorly, a given NDA performs that seemingly simple purpose.
During this webinar, our presenters will address these topics and more:
- Building the best NDA for a given situation
- The reason for an NDA (this may be more complicated than you think)
- How information can be disclosed
- Why is the information being disclosed
- Practice tips
Our presenters will be Fitch Even attorneys Steven G. Parmelee and Michael R. Anderson.
Steve has extensive experience in complex patent preparation and prosecution in the U.S. and abroad. He has assisted clients with patent portfolio management, freedom-to-operate issues, and transactions for over 45 years.
Michael has experience assisting clients with patent preparation and prosecution, opinions on invalidity, and non-infringement issues relating to patent clearance and diligence matters.
A recording of this webinar is available through January 30, 2024.
