Trade secrets are vital to the success of many businesses, but their value can be compromised once their confidentiality is breached. As the trade secret landscape is constantly evolving, it is challenging for businesses and their counsel to stay updated on the latest legal developments and enforcement strategies along with best practices related to damages.
