On Monday, February 27, 2023, Lieff Cabraser partner Dean M. Harvey will speak on the IFSEA webinar panel entitled “The Rise and Demise of the Non-Compete?”

The panel comes in the wake of the FTC proposing a ban on non-competition covenants in employment agreements. This would have a significant impact on senior executives and founders, and their businesses, in the USA and around the world. This program will examine these developments, as panelists discuss the specifics of the FTC proposal and consider the consequences for:

  • Executives around the world who are working for US headquartered businesses or under US employment contracts
  • Individuals who participate in US and global incentive plans with good/bad leaver provisions conditioned on compliance with non-competition provisions
  • Founders who are subject to a non-competition clause as part of the terms of sale of their stake in the business

The International Forum of Senior Executive Advisers (IFSEA) is the leading international thought-leadership group focused on the needs of Senior Executives and Founders in all their risk, reward, regulatory and reputation management areas. It provides the opportunity to share your knowledge and experience, learn and network with Executives, Founders and their specialist advisers across disciplines and across the world.
