NEW YORK, April 1, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ALM's Law Journal Press, a leading publisher of print and digital publications for legal and business professionals, has published Protecting Intellectual Property in the Age of Employee Mobility: Forms and Analysis, a comprehensive treatise that offers authoritative guidance on legal risks and practical steps employers should take.

The book contains numerous sample agreements, letters and other forms that can be used by employers. Whether a company is adopting internal procedures or seeking the magic words to make a contract enforceable, these sample documents can help prevent costly problems.

The author of Protecting Intellectual Property in the Age of Employee Mobility: Forms and Analysis is Bradford Newman, a recognized authority on trade secret cases. Newman founded and chairs Paul Hastings' International Employee Mobility and Trade Secret Group, routinely serves as lead trial counsel in cases with potential eight and nine-figure liability, and has successfully prosecuted and defended a broad spectrum of data theft, trade secret and employee mobility cases in state and federal courts throughout the country.

Specific topics covered by this treatise include:

  • Conducting a "trade secret audit" to determine what needs to be protected
  • Monitoring and managing technology, external devices, and social media in the workplace
  • Minimizing risk when recruiting competitors' employers
  • Employment, confidentiality, and invention assignment agreements
  • Exit interviews and "high-risk departure programs"
  • Strategies when operating in jurisdictions that recognize the "inevitable disclosure" doctrine
  • Non-competition and non-solicitation agreements
  • Dealing with a competitor who has hired away a key employee
