Are Non Disclosure Agreements Legal In Canada

I would like to express my appreciation for Ms. Lynne Frank`s expertise in mediating for me on March 18, 2016. Ms. Frank`s expertise and method of housekeeping have been excellent. I have been associated with many people in the legal field during my career and have found Ms. Frank among the best as a negotiator and conciliation lawyer For many years, WP Law has been Durham`s leading real estate firm. The group of talented lawyers and associates offer efficient and inexpensive real estate services. WP Law is also proud to offer legal services in the areas of wills and estates, as well as corporate law. The basic rule is that NDAs are not applicable where disclosure of conduct is protected by law or where the act that is the subject of the NDA constitutes serious misconduct.

These restrictions are rooted in two notions: (a) that there is no trust in an injustice; and (b) such trust does not work where disclosure of information is essential to the public interest. We plan to build on WP Law`s strong legacy and, with DSF`s already considerable presence in this area, we intend to combine our practices to create an exceptional full-service law firm in Durham, capable of offering a full range of legal services, including: real estate, social, commercial, estate litigation, family proceedings, wills and estates, personal injury, immigration, insurance, employment and tax planning, among others.

It is not uncommon to see very detailed definitions of confidential information and then a very fundamental use/disclosure provision that almost null and neas the purpose of the NDA.

One of the main features of an NDA is a specific description of the purposes for which confidential purposes may be used, coupled with a general prohibition on using it for purposes other than those prescribed, in order to prevent the receiving party from using valuable confidential information inappropriately. Typical uses of confidential information may be: implementation of certain professional services (e.g. B engineering, software needs analysis, management consulting); the implementation of due diligence of an acquisition target company; examination of the terms of a potential joint venture or other business opportunity; etc. In addition, particular attention should be paid when concluding UNED with authorities that may be subject to requests for information. Such NDAs should ensure that, in accordance with existing freedom of information legislation, the disclosed party has the opportunity to object to the disclosure of its confidential information. . . .
