Customer Question
What should I pay attention...
What should I pay attention to when I sign and NDA? I’ve been signing a couple lately but want to make sure I understand what’s in it. I found this list below on a blog but I’m having a hard time finding what language actually represents that in the NDA.1. Look at what information is confidential
2. Make sure the agreement is “mutual”—meaning it protects both the clients and your information.
3. Make sure the confidential obligations terminate at some point in time. If your obligations are “Perpetual” it means you’re singing for life.
4. Be aware for non-competition clauses. They can prevent you from working for the competition of that client for a period of time.
5. Keep your intellectual property rights. You don’t want to sign away the rights of something that you own or invented.With all these points the question that comes to mind is: But how does that look? Where can I find this language in the NDA? I’ve combined five NDAs in the PDF file attached and it would be really helpful if you can point out what sections to look at to find these 5 points. Adding comments to the PDF file (with the numbers of the list above) at the specific sections of the PDF might be best.Would that be something you could help me understand?

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
