Welcome to the inaugural posting of Legal Issues in the Executive Suite. We hope to use this blog to inform executives of legal issues that affect them as individuals on a daily basis.
We won’t be discussing how companies can write an iron-clad covenant not to compete, but we will explore how talented individuals with in-demand skill sets can maximize their opportunities in the marketplace within the confines of (or despite) a covenant not to compete.
We won’t be offering advice to companies on how to comply with Sarbanes-Oxley, but we’ll address the ins and outs of the Dodd-Frank Act and when and how executives with information about possible shareholder fraud should make their concerns known—and to whom.
We’ll discuss all these and other critical legal issues of importance to today’s executives. As high-level employees, executives are in a complex legal world. They are both representatives of their company and its management as well as individuals with interests that possibly conflict with those of their employers.
These are the issues we will write about at Legal Issues in the Executive Suite. If there are topics you would like to see addressed here, please feel free to e-mail them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
