NO-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENTS

LAWYER IN ORLANDO, FLORIDA

Non-Disclosure Agreement Lawyer in Orlando, Florida

When doing business with another party, you may need to share confidential information. This information may be related to your clients, or it may be proprietary information that is valuable to your business. As we live in a knowledge and information economy, many businesses base their value on their trade secrets, client lists, and proprietary knowledge. If you are running a business where a client’s confidential information will be shared with employees, it is important that you put provisions in place to protect your clients from the sharing of information by your employees or independent contractors. Non-disclosure agreements can help you protect your rights.

In our current economy, most businesses base their value on their trade secrets, business practices, and client lists. If you hire employees, you will want to protect your business interests and prevent your employees from sharing information with competitors should they ever work elsewhere. One way to do this is to have a non-disclosure agreement in place. Legal Counsel, P.A. employs a non-disclosure lawyer in Orlando, Florida, who can assist you if you need these agreements for employees, contractors, or need to enter into these agreements with those with whom you do business.

What Must be Included in a Non-Disclosure Agreement in Orlando, Florida? 

Confidentiality agreements must often specify what information is to be kept confidential (scope), the length of time the information should remain confidential (time) and include terms that specifically limit the employee or contractor from profiting or benefiting from confidential information. This can include sharing the confidential information with a new employer, or going into business and using confidential information for profit. Non-disclosure agreements may include time limits that bar a worker from working in the industry for a number of years in order to protect the interests of the company. Non-disclosure agreements may also include clauses that claim ownership over anything an employee produces during the terms of his or her employment. So what must be included in a non-disclosure agreement? Generally these agreements include the following:

  • The agreement should clearly identify the parties involved in the agreement.
  • The agreement should clearly define the scope of items deemed confidential under the agreement. The more specific here, the better to ensure that the agreement is enforceable.
  • The length of time that the agreement will be in force.

Confidentiality agreements can include specific information about how an employee or contractor is expected to keep trade secrets secret. For example, in our digital culture, non-disclosure agreements may offer specific guidance on how parties in a non-disclosure agreement are expected to keep their e-mail addresses and computers secure.

There are cases where information may be excluded from a non-disclosure agreement. This includes information that may be known to the general public, information that may have been developed by the employee or contractor independent to the agreement, or information that may have been disclosed independent of the agreement. It is important that you protect your data and information. The best way to do this is to include non-disclosure agreements with all parties with whom you may work.

When is it appropriate to use a non-disclosure agreement? Non-disclosure agreements are not limited to employment and independent contractor agreements. Non-disclosure agreements may also be used when discussing business deals with potential partners, when sharing information with potential investors or possible stock holders, or when receiving services from a supplier.
