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.

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