Protecting Your Company?s Most Valuable Trade Secrets: Best Practices and Recent Statutory Developments
Joel Bush and John Moye, attorneys with extensive experience litigating trade secret matters, will provide a range of "practice pointers" for companies looking to protect their most valuable intellectual property-with a particular emphasis on best practices in implementing non-disclosure agreements. Using real-world examples, this Legal Quick Hit presentation will assist companies looking for practical guidance in preparing robust non-disclosure agreements (both for employees and third parties). The presentation will also discuss recent statutory developments in the trade secret area, particularly at the federal level-and how these statutes might bolster the protection already afforded by a non-disclosure agreement.
