As trade secrets have become increasingly important, more technology companies are litigating to protect these valuable assets.  Join us for a lively discussion about lessons learned from recent cases, including several that Morrison & Foerster litigators have tried and won.  What are the implications for how your company protects its intellectual property?  Whether your next case involves a business deal that ended badly, key employees who joined a competitor, or other facts, you will want to hear:

  • Does the complained-of conduct count as misappropriation of a trade secret?
  • Will a Non-Disclosure Agreement protect you?
  • What are potential damages?
  • The perils of stonewalling in discovery.
  • How do juries resolve trade secrets cases?
  • What if a case has international aspects?
  • What can you do to protect yourself against trade secret claims?
