This webinar will focus on the latest strategies for trade secrets protection, with a particular focus on the Defend Trade Secrets Act and international enforcement options.

Join Fish & Richardson attorneys Natalie Arbaugh, Thomas Frongillo, and Caroline Simons on Wednesday, May 18, to get insight into some of the recent trends and developments in trade secret law, including:

  • The Defend Trade Secrets Act (DTSA). It’s finally here. How does this much-anticipated statute change the landscape? What new options does the DTSA give companies to protect their trade secrets? What considerations should in-house counsel make when contemplating bringing a lawsuit, and what changes to company policy should be made right away in response to the new law?
  • International trade secret enforcement. What are the trends in civil and criminal enforcement when it comes to international trade secret theft, including the government’s increased use of the Economic Espionage Act (EEA) to protect U.S. business interests? How has the U.S. worked in cooperation with foreign governments (e.g., China, Europe) on trade secret enforcement, and what cross-border developments should companies know about?
  • Wielding the EEA. What lessons can we learn from recent, high-profile criminal EEA prosecutions? What complications will you face pursuing a civil case if the government is proceeding in parallel with a criminal prosecution? And conversely, what should companies do if a new employee walks in the door with another’s trade secrets?
  • Arbitration. There are pros and pitfalls of arbitration when it comes to trade secret protection specifically. In light of recent developments in this area, how can companies avoid unintended consequences of common oversights in arbitration clauses?

If you have an interest the Defend Trade Secrets Act, the Economic Espionage Act, trade secrets enforcement, or intellectual property issues, you won’t want to miss this complimentary webinar.
