If your company operates in many countries and must disclose confidential information, it is advisable to determine the applicable law of the state regarding the duration of the obligation of confidentiality in each state. If your company operates in a state that accepts the applicability of indeterminate confidentiality agreements, you can qualify that state as the law of the agreement and use it for the disclosure of trade secrets. Instead, you can create two separate chords. A confidentiality agreement for your trade secrets and another non-compete agreement. In this way, even if your foreign agreement is cancelled, the confidentiality of your business secrets will not automatically be cancelled. They could insist that confidentiality agreements are used without specific time frames, if there is a likelihood that secret business information will be disclosed.
