Overview:

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.

As trade secret theft remains a major concern for both domestic and foreign companies, it is imperative for practitioners to keep up with current trends as well as be well-versed in tactics to effectively mitigate potential liabilities.

Our panel of key thought leaders and practitioners will offer an in-depth discussion of recent developments and best practices concerning trade secret damages. This LIVE Webcast also aims to provide the audience strategies for navigating the new risks and challenges in this critical area of law.

Key issues that will be covered in this course are:

  • Crucial Considerations for Dealing with Trade Secret Damages
  • Unique Challenges in Assessing Damages
  • Best Strategies and Defenses
  • Recent and Significant Damages Cases
