Frank Aquila, Krishna Veeraraghavan and Mimi Butler Co-author Article on Confidentiality Agreements

March 18, 2013

The March 18 issue of Bloomberg BNA’s Securities Regulation & Law Report published an article titled, “Confidentiality Agreements: Lessons from Delaware,” co-authored by Messrs. Aquila and Veeraraghavan and Ms. Butler. The article looks at three 2012 Delaware court decisions that addressed issues relating to confidentiality agreements, and notes that the “lack of clarity can lead to a standstill being read into a nondisclosure agreement, even where one has not been explicitly included or negotiated among the parties.” The authors caution that “both lawyers and management would do well to heed the reminder that these cases offer.” This article also appeared in the March 20 issue of Bloomberg BNA’s Alternative Investment Law Report and the April 1 issue of Bloomberg BNA’s Mergers & Acquisitions Law Report.
