Waypoint Abroadseeking quick reads from non-US counsel

The Waypoint Nondisclosure Agreement, the standard business nondisclosure agreement, is approaching version 2.0.0. The biggest goal for 2.0.0 is to support more common-law jurisdictions besides the USA and Canada, for which it’s already been proofed.

If you know good contract counsel who reads English and holds a license to practice law in another common-law country, I’d greatly appreciate a quick review informal word from them that the terms will function correctly under their law. You can send them a link to the current review draft and copy me on an e-mail at kyle@kemitchell.com.

We are focusing initially on the largest common-law economies, where an NDA like Waypoint is likely to see most use:

  • United Kingdom
  • India
  • Australia
  • Israel
  • Hong Kong
  • Singapore
  • New Zealand

However, we’d enthusiastically welcome word on whether the form works, or what changes would help to make it work, for any common-law jurisdiction:

  • Antigua and Barbuda
  • Bahamas
  • Bangldesh
  • Barbados
  • Belize
  • Bhutan
  • British Virgin Islands
  • Cayman Islands
  • Cyprus
  • Dominica
  • Fiji
  • Ghana
  • Gibraltar
  • Grenada
  • Ireland
  • Jamaica
  • Kiribati
  • Liberia
  • Marshall Islands
  • Myanmar
  • Nauru
  • Nepal
  • Palau
  • Saint Kitts and Nevis
  • Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
  • Tonga
  • Trinidad and Tobago
  • Tuvalu
  • Uganda

Waypoint has seen amazing feedback, use, and adoption over the past few months. I’m convinced, more than ever, that this is a method of standardization that can achieve real progress in deals law.

Your thoughts and feedback are always welcome by e-mail.
