(added information - ka 3/26/13)

Areas of specialty are legal issues relating to employee mobility and executive-related legal issues arising from employment (e.g., executive contracts, noncompetes, nonsolicitation agreements, employee raiding, breaches of duty of loyalty, fiduciary duty, misappropriation of trade secrets, social media issues relating to employee moves, interstate battles when employees move, etc.). I would be very happy to present on any of those topics any time, and I really think that I could provide a much more interesting and experience oriented seminar on those topics.
