Confidentiality & Non-disclosure Agreements
Maya Murphy attorneys understand Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreements. Many employees and employers enter into Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreements either before the employment relationship begins, during the employment relationship, or even as part of a Severance Agreement.
The purpose of Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreements is to protect confidential and proprietary information from disclosure to third parties. Often, the agreements can be modified, or limited in scope to protect the information and allow the employee to work. The attorneys at Maya Murphy can help both employers and employees reach an agreement on language in a Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreement that protects both interests fairly.
At Maya Murphy, we represent employers seeking to enforce the terms of Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreements, and also defend employees if they are sued for alleged breaches.
The goal of an effective Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreement is for the legal document to be enforceable, and for both parties to understand the terms. In the event of a breach, the goal is to reach a negotiated resolution prior to judicial intervention.
Our lawyers are experienced at negotiating, drafting, and enforcing the terms of Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreements. Contact Managing Partner Joseph Maya to schedule a consultation. He can be contacted at JMaya@Mayalaw.com or (212) 682-5700 x110 or (203) 221-3100 x100.
