This is the second in a two-volume set of treatises that gives attorneys detailed guidance on drafting and negotiating restrictive covenants and litigating trade secrets issues at the international level. Volume II explores the differences between the U.S. and countries in the Americas, Asia, the Middle East, Oceania, and Africa in regulating noncompetition and nonsolicitation provisions and in imposing restrictions related to confidential information and trade secrets.
Main Volume Information
Drafting and negotiating restrictive covenants or litigating covenants and trade secrets issues at the international level is no simple task. As the global economy continues to expand, it is becoming increasingly challenging for attorneys in the U.S. and in other jurisdictions representing employers to ensure such provisions are enforceable worldwide, and for those representing employees to ensure that their clients are able to retain their mobility in the event of a change in circumstances.
Now there is a two-volume set of treatises that provides detailed comprehensive assistance for the drafting, negotiating, and litigating process, with information provided by attorneys in key countries around the world: Restrictive Covenants and Trade Secrets in Employment Law: An International Survey, Volume I and Volume II. Volume II explores the differences between the U.S. and countries in the Americas, Asia, the Middle East, Oceania, and Africa in regulating noncompetition and nonsolicitation provisions and in imposing restrictions related to confidential information and trade secrets, as well as use of garden leave and restrictions on equity compensation in this area. The authors also offer key insights on strategies and tactics that are essential to dealing effectively with these issues. Each country-specific chapter is written by highly-regarded local lawyers, and examines:

I know of no book that comes even close to covering this territory.
