ARLINGTON, Va., Sept. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- BNA Books, a division of specialized news and information publisher BNA, today announces the publication of the 2011 Supplement to Restrictive Covenants and Trade Secrets in Employment Law: An International Survey, Volume I. This treatise and the new 2011 Supplement offer updated analysis of drafting, negotiating, and litigating processes across the globe.
Drafting and negotiating restrictive covenants or litigating covenants and trade secrets issues at the international level is no simple task. Now there is a treatise that provides detailed comprehensive assistance for the drafting, negotiating, and litigating processes, with information provided by attorneys in key countries around the world. Restrictive Covenants and Trade Secrets in Employment Law: An International Survey, Volume I explores the differences between the U.S. and European countries 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 surveys also identify and analyze the privacy concerns that arise when employers try to restrict employees' disclosures, conduct investigations concerning possible violations, or monitor compliance. Each country-specific chapter is written by highly-regarded local lawyers and examines:
- Applicable country law, international conventions, and treaties
- Practical issues in drafting restrictive covenants
- Practical issues, strategies, and tactics in trade secret protection and enforcement
- Forum options
The 2011 Supplement to Volume I provides additional coverage including:
- The Bulgarian Supreme Court of Cassation (SCC) decisions finding that post-termination noncompete restrictions are null and void
- The Italian labor law amendment reducing the time period for filing suits with the labor court
- The Swiss law introducing greater uniformity in court systems and procedural rules in the various cantons
- The Ukrainian law concerning protection of personal data
- The new Practice Direction on Disclosure of Electronic Documents coming into force in the United Kingdom and the Court of Appeal's denial of the Tullett Prebon appeal

Lazar, a partner at Outten & Golden LLP, New York, NY, and Gary R. Siniscalco, a partner in the San Francisco, CA, office of Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP.
