In today’s highly competitive work environment, trade secrets are the lifeblood of a business. As more and more companies move to hybrid and remote work structures, the risk of misappropriation magnifies. This underscores the need for businesses to level up their trade secret protection and create sophisticated confidentiality controls without stifling collaborative workspaces.

As the number of trade secret dispute filings rises and court decisions continue to shape the regulatory landscape, businesses and practitioners must keep themselves in the loop of emerging developments. They must create robust defense strategies to successfully safeguard their trade secrets and avoid the pitfalls.

In this LIVE Webcast, a panel of key thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will provide an in-depth discussion of the critical and recurrent issues surrounding trade secret litigation. Speakers will also offer new defense strategies to ensure success in this type of lawsuit.
