Signature CLE ~ What In-House Counsel Need to Know About Trade Secret Litigation


Jenner & Block LLP
919 Third Avenue
New York, NY 10022


Trade secrets have never been more important to corporate value or more vulnerable; which is why competitors, suppliers, customers, overseas actors, and 60% of your departing employees are trying to steal them. When the Senior Executive calls with a trade secret emergency, what should you do?  Fortunately, there are many litigation options. Recently, Congress passed the Defend Trade Secrets Act (DTSA), and the International Trade Commission (ITC) is more active than ever. However, you should consider potential exposure for disclosure of third-party information, securities law, and remediation. In this panel, you'll hear from experienced in-house counsel, outside litigation attorneys, and digital forensics and eDiscovery specialists who will address the following questions:

•    Should you utilize state court (the traditional venue) or Federal court?

•    How can you strategically use both the DTSA and the ITC?

•    How should Executives and the Board react to a theft?

•    How does eDiscovery differ in trade secret litigation versus civil litigation?

•    What are the risks of failing to investigate and disclose a material theft in a timely manner?
