Confidentiality agreements play an essential but frustrating role in the transactional world. Essential because protecting one’s trade secrets and other confidential information plays an increasingly important role in business. Frustrating because lawyers and contract-management personnel spend an inordinate amount of time drafting and reviewing confidentiality agreements and wrestling with the subtle and awkward issues they often raise.

This program presents a practical, structured, and up-to-date overview of key topics relating to different kinds of confidentiality agreements. The speakers are Ken Adams, the leading authority on contract drafting; Chris Lemens, general counsel of General Information Services, Inc.; and Glenn West, a partner at the law firm Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP.
