Confidentiality Agreements & Protective Orders

This technical note describes the procedure for submitting a request for Lexbe’s signature on a Protective Order or Confidentiality Agreement.


What is a Protective Order or Confidentiality Agreement?


The primary purpose of a protective order or confidentiality agreement is to designate procedures agreed upon by all parties to facilitate the protection of confidential and/or privileged information. Additionally, such agreements will often include clawback provisions in case inadvertent disclosure of confidential or privileged information occurs, as well as procedures to assist in the settling of disputes regarding confidentiality.
