In the recent past, trade secrets were mainly governed by state law. When the DTSA took effect last year, it greatly expanded trade secret protection under federal law. What are the current options for trade secret owners, what are the differences between state and federal law, and how can companies best take advantage or protect themselves?

Fish principals Olga May and Martina Hufnal had a detailed discussion of these issues.

Topics included:

  • When and where to file – practical considerations of jurisdiction selection: federal or state?
  • Scope of protection: what is trade secret misappropriation?
  • Employer/employee relationship:
    • Whistleblower immunity
    • Inevitable disclosure
    • Non-compete agreements
  • Remedies:
    • Damages, including the effect of whistleblower provisions on ability to recover certain damages and fees
    • Injunctions
    • Ex parte seizures
  • Overview of cases to date under the DTSA – what are the trends?
