The threat of former employees misappropriating trade secrets and confidential information, and poaching customers and colleagues, is an ever-present and very serious concern for companies. With the current significant differences in the level of protection afforded to companies, the cost of litigation, the level of enforcement across the EU, and the European Council announcement in May 2014 that it is proceeding with a Directive to strengthen trade secret protection laws throughout the EU, it is very timely to consider existing laws and the proposals for change.
This webinar will look at the current state of play in France, Italy, Germany and the UK, and also at the European proposals for strengthening trade secret protection. We will compare and contrast how companies can restrict former employees’ activities post-termination, and provide practical guidance to companies on how to protect their most valuable assets.
