Pro Tips – Non-Disclosure Agreement

NDA – How To Protect Your Most Valuable Assets (Intellectual Property – “IP”) In Business

Businesses often agree to collaborate in order to expand or to explore other commercial transactions. A solid Confidentiality and Non-Disclosure Agreement (“NDA”) is the first step towards protecting your most valuable intangible assets (intellectual property – “IP”) in business.

It secures a successful collaboration and serves as a precursor to a mutually beneficial engagement in order to help your business grow and scale safely.

This session will empower you with a clear understanding of the nature of a good NDA, unpack its contents in plain language, identify potential pitfalls to watch out for and share the latest best practice.

A good NDA is one that contains:

  • Clear and Comprehensive Language:

A good Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) should use clear and unambiguous language to define the confidential information that is protected by the agreement. It should clearly state what constitutes confidential information, including specific examples, and provide guidelines on how it should be handled and protected.

  • Enforceable and Reasonable Terms:

An effective NDA should include enforceable terms that protect the interests of both parties involved. It should outline the duration of the confidentiality obligations, specifying how long the information should be kept confidential. The agreement should also define the permitted uses and restrictions on the disclosure of the confidential information. It is important to strike a balance between protecting the disclosing party’s interests and allowing the receiving party to carry out their legitimate business activities.

  • Mutual Consent and Consideration:

A good NDA should be based on the mutual consent of both parties involved. It should clearly state that both parties agree to keep the disclosed information confidential and outline the consequences of a breach of the agreement. Additionally, an NDA should include a provision for consideration, such as a clause stating that one party provides valuable information or access to proprietary knowledge, while the other party agrees to maintain confidentiality. This ensures that the agreement is legally binding and enforceable.

Who should attend? Busy entrepreneurs and decision-makers wishing to expand their businesses without putting their IP at risk.

Not only will attendees from this session have the knowledge to negotiate better agreements whilst keeping themselves and their IP safe, but will also receive a professionally drafted complimentary NDA from Contracts4Biz
