Trade Secret and Employee Mobility San Francisco 2017

The most significant trade secret reform in decades is about to become law. The Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016 (DTSA) will modernize and strengthen trade secret law and address a number of issues that trade secret owners commonly encountered under current laws.. Because trade secrets are a fundamental building block of California’s and the U.S. economy that help drive investment, innovation and economic growth, trade secret litigation and employee mobility cases are the hottest areas of intellectual property and employment litigation. Employees are getting laid off in record numbers, more and more senior level executives and employees are leaving one company to start or join a direct competitor. This program will provide participants with advice on how to protect company trade secrets, guard against employee raids, recruit from competitors without getting sued, and deal with the important issues that arise when employees leave to compete with their former employers.
